Problem 6-47 Dynamics with friction - Part 2 - B

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.

Accumulated Solution

FBD with directions, forces and angles indicated.

No. Check the components.
