Physics 111 Lab Alexander Crosson Chris Springer Michael Burns Eric Wilfong Hussien AlHaddad Abdul Ali Glenn Wilson March 6, 2010 Problem Statement Force, by definition, is an external pull acting on an object which results in an object to accelerate. Force is defined by the equation mass times the acceleration of the object. There are many different types of forces that act upon an object usually more than one at one time. In this problem, frictional force is the specific type of force that will be studied and defined. Frictional force is defined by the horizontal force along a rough surface acting upon an object moving along this rough surface. The frictional force is equal to the coefficient of kinetic friction multiplied by the normal force. The coefficient of kinetic friction is represented by μk . while the normal force is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by gravity. Gravity is equal to 9.8 m/s^2. In this lab, the group is trying to solve for the coefficient of
