Use the diagram below to assist in your problem solving. A 158-Newton force is being applied at an upward angle of 30.0 degrees (theta) to accelerate a 58.7-kg box across a horizontal surface. If the surface is frictionless, then determine the magnitude of the acceleration (in m/s/s).

Use the diagram below to assist in your problem solving. A 158-Newton force is being applied at an upward angle of 39 degrees (theta) to move a 58.7-kg box across a horizontal surface at a constant velocity. Determine the force of friction (in Newtons) acting upon the object.

(Referring to the previous problem.) Determine the coefficient of friction ('mu') for the above surfaces.

Use the diagram below to assist in your problem solving. A 495-Newton force is being applied at an upward angle of 30 degrees (theta) to accelerate a 59.07-kg box across a horizontal surface. If the coefficient of friction ('mu') between the surface and the object is .497, then determine the acceleration (in m/s/s).

Use the diagram below to assist in your problem solving. A 5.89-kg object is placed upon an inclined plane which has an incline angle (theta) of 39.1 degrees (theta). If the object slides down the inclined plane with a constant velocity, then what is the force of friction (in Newtons) acting upon the object?
