which yields f k = 47 N. We also apply Newton’s second law to the y axis (perpendicular to the incline surface), where the acceleration-component is zero: 140cos25 0 127 N. NN FF −° = ¡ = Therefore, μ k = f k / F N = 0.37. (b) Returning to our first equation in part (a), we see that if the downhill component of the weight force were insufficient to overcome static friction, the child would not slide at all. Therefore, we require 140 sin 25° > f s ,max = s F N , which leads to tan 25° = 0.47 > s . The minimum value of s equals k and is more subtle; reference to §6-1 is recommended. If k exceeded s then when static friction were overcome (as the incline is raised) then it
