Using the force diagram for the crate, we can write ? F = m a : xcomponent: F k F N = 0; ycomponent: F N Mg = 0. Thus F N = Mg , and F = k F N = k Mg = (0.30)(12.0 kg)(9.80 m/s 2 ) = 35 N . If k = 0, there is no force required to maintain constant speed. 2. ( a ) In general, static friction is given by F fr = s F N . Immediately before the box starts to move, the static friction force reaches its maximum value: F fr,max = s F N . For the instant before the box starts to move, the acceleration is zero. Using the force diagram for the box, we can write ? F = m a : xcomponent: F s F N = 0; ycomponent: F N Mg = 0. Thus F N = Mg , and F = s F N = s Mg ; 25.0 N = s (6.0 kg)(9.80 m/s 2 ), which gives s = 0.43 . ( b ) When the box accelerates and the friction changes to kinetic, we have F k F N = Ma ; 25.0 N k (6.0 kg)(9.80 m/s 2 ) = (6.0 kg)(0.50 m/s 2 ), which gives k = 0.37 . 3. ( a ) ( b ) ( c ) In ( a ) the friction is static and opposes the impending motion down the plane. In ( b ) the friction is kinetic and opposes the motion down the plane. In ( c ) the friction is kinetic and opposes the motion up the plane. 4. If we simplify the forces so that there is one normal force, we have the diagram shown. We can write ? F = m a : xcomponent: F fr + mg sin = 0; ycomponent: F N mg cos = 0. When we combine the two equations, we have tan = F fr / F N = s . Thus we have tan max = s = 0.8, max = 39 .
