Unformatted text preview: Greek letter Mu). M is the slope of the line that gives the force required to move an object given its weight in N. Since we measured the weight of the object and also the force it took to move the object, we calculated Mu by dividing the force it took to accelerate away from zero by the weight of the object. In part two we calculated the same value by finding the angle at which had enough force to accelerate the object away from zero and the smallest angle at which the velocity would remain constant. To accelerate from zero was M s set equal to the tangent of the angle it took. The M k was the smallest angle it took to keep the object at a constant velocity....
