A student applies a 1.5 N horizontal force on a box of weight 20N on a floor. The static friction coefficient is 0.3. Does the box move? Explain your reasoning and SHOW WORK! Thank you!
AnswerHorizontal force applied on the box is Weight of box Normal force on the box is minimum frictional force necessary to move the box is which is greater than the applied horizontal force.
So the box does not move.
