Chapter 4, Problem 29P
Textbook Problem

A dockworker loading crates on a ship finds that a 20.0-kg crate, initially at rest on a horizontal surface, requires a 75.0-N horizontal force to set it in motion. However, after the crate is in motion, a horizontal force of 60.0 N is required to keep it moving with a constant speed. Find the coefficients of static and kinetic friction between crate and floor.
