Problem 5.7: A 12-kg box slides on a rough 26.56° ramp
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A 12-kg box slides on a rough (meaning that there is friction) 26.56° ramp as shown in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Restart.
- Draw a free-body diagram for the box, showing all the forces that act.
- What is the net force on the box? Include both magnitude and direction in your answer.
- What is the value for the coefficient of kinetic friction?
