Expert Solution
To determine


The minimum force must exert to get the block moving

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

Mass of the block, m=45kg

Diagram of the block


    Formula used:

    For a stationary object algebraic sum of all the forces in a direction must be zero.



    The weight of the block will act in downward direction


    Consider the free body diagram of the block


      The normal force on the lake by the block is


      Expert Solution
      To determine


      Acceleration of the block once it start moving
