Lesson: The Equilibrium of a Body on a Rough Horizontal Plane Mathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to solve problems involving the equilibrium of a body on a rough horizontal plane.
Given that the coefficient of static friction between a body and a plane is , what is the angle of friction? Round your answer to the nearest minute if necessary.
A body weighing 8.5 newtons rests on a rough horizontal plane. A horizontal force is acting on it causing it to be on the point of moving. Given that the force of the friction was 3.4 newtons, find the coefficient of static friction.
A body weighing 5 N rests on a rough horizontal plane. The coefficient of friction between the body and the plane is . Given that is the magnitude of the friction force measured in newtons, express the range of its possible values as an interval.
