Question

A force of 46N is applied horizontally to a box with a mass of 0.5kg. The block sits on a horizontal table where the coefficient of friction between the box and the table is .5.

What is the acceleration of the box? (In m/s^2)

Step 1

Given:

Mass of the object = 0.5 kg

Coefficient of friction = 0.5

Value of applied force = 46 N

Step 2
