Textbook Problem

A box rests on the back of a truck. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the bed of the truck is 0.800. (a) When the truck accelerates forward, what force accelerates the box? (b) Find the maximum acceleration the truck can have before the box slides.

(a)

To determine
The force that is accelerating the box.

Explanation

Friction force arises when surfaces of two objects are in contact. It opposes the relative lateral motion.

The formula for friction force is,

Fs=μsmg </

(b)

To determine
The maximum acceleration of the truck.
