A 55.0-kg box rests on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of static friction between the box and the surface is 0.300. A force of 156 N is applied to the box directed at an angle of 18.0 above the horizontal. Does the box move?

Solution Summary

Brief calculations show how to work out if a given box will move under a specific force and friction.
