Frictional force is the result of what kind of fundamental force?
Frictional force always acts in what direction relative to the motion of one
body relative to the other?

friction between them is .5. What is the frictional force acting upon the block?
A 10 kg block lies at rest on a table, with a coefficient of static friction
between them of .5. A horizontal force is then applied of magnitude 50 N. What

friction in what way?
A block moves across a tabletop with a certain speed and experiences a kinetic
frictional force. What happens to the frictional force when the speed of the
block is doubled?
A 10 kg block lies at rest on table. The coefficient of static friction and the
coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the table are .5 and .25

A 10 kg block is held in equilibrium by a rope hanging vertically from the
ceiling. What is the tension in the rope?

velocity. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the floor is
.5. What is the tension in the rope?

, 3 cm
and 4 cm
. What side of the cube
will experience the least friction when moved across a rough surface?
A 10 kg block is placed on a floor, but attached to a rope via a pulley system.
