Step 1

Given information:

Mass of the block (m) = 4.4 kg

Coefficient of friction between the block and the wall (µ) = 0.30

The distance the block travelled up the wall (s) = 3.5

Angle of the force applied (θ) = 300

Step 2 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseFcose 0=300 'f mg Since the body is moving with a constant velocity, we can say that forces in all the direction will balance each other, hence we can write: N F cose Equation (1) = mg +f ....... Equation (2) F sine EEE Where "f" is the friction force acting on the body, it is given by: f Nu f Fcos0(u) Fsine fullscreen
