Problem Set C

 

Problem #14:

Chuck Wagon applies a horizontal force of 394 N to accelerate a 44.2-kg box from a rest position. The coefficient of friction between the crate and the floor is 0.873. Determine the acceleration (in m/s/s) of the crate. Enter your answer, accurate to the third decimal place.
