4. The coefficient of static friction of rubber on ice is approximately us=0.100. A
2001b woman stands on an icy sidewalk in rubber ﬂipﬂops on a cold Detroit day.
There is a horizontal force acting on the woman to the right F. a) Draw the free body diagram of the woman clearly noting the force vectors
