A 2-kg book is pushed along a table with a force of 4N. Find the frictional force on the book if the book's acceleration is 1.5 m/s squared. Explain how to find frictional force.
We can use such formula F=am, where F is resultant force acting on book, a is acceleration and m is mass Now we can substitute our data. F=1.5*2 F=3 If we know that on the book is acting 4N and friction force and resultt is 3N we can create such equation 4N-Fr=3N /-4N -Fr=3N-4N -Fr=-1N /*(-1) Fr=1N - its the result.
