# In the figure, a block weighing 23.0 N is held at rest against a vertical wall by a horizontal forceof magnitude 61 N. The coefficient of static friction between the wall and the block is 0.55, and the coefficient of kinetic frictionbetween them is 0.38. In six experiments, a second forcePis applied to the block and directed parallel to the wall with these magnitudes and directions: (a)35 N, up, (b) 13 N, up, (c)48 N, up, (d)62N, up, (e)9.1 N, down, and (f)19 N, down.
