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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
