In this interactive homework problem, the coefficient of kinetic friction is given for a moving 20 kg block, the learner must determine the force of kinetic friction acting on the mass. A user-activated "help" sequence is provided for each step of the problem-solving, from conceptual analysis through setting up equations for accurate calculation. Immediate feedback is received for both correct and incorrect responses.  This item is part of a larger collection of interactive homework problems for introductory physics.
