Problem 6-47 Dynamics with friction - Part 2 - A
A boy drags a huge garbage can of mass \(27\; kg\) along a horizontal driveway at a constant speed of \(1.8\; m/s\). He exerts a force of \(112\; N\) at an angle of \(27^\circ\) above the horizontal. Determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between the can and the driveway.
What is the definition of \(\mu_K\) ?
(A) \(\mu_K = F_K/F_N\)
(B) \(\mu_K = F_KF_N\)
(C) \(\mu_K = F_N/F_K\)
