Question

# A contestant in a winter games event pushes a 50.0 kg block of ice across a frozen lake as shown in Figure

4.29(a). The coefficient of static friction is 0.1 and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.03.

(a) Calculate the minimum force F he must exert to get the block moving.

=N

(b) What is its acceleration once it starts to move, if that force is maintained?

=m/s2
