Unformatted text preview: F = ma = 0. b) Find all the forces in your free body diagram (magnitude only here, direction given by arrows in FBD). Show your reasoning. c) Find the minimum coefficient of static friction so the meter stick will not slip against the wall. Show your reasoning. 25 = a = net = F net =...
