Question

An object of mass 5 kg is on a rough horizontal plane and being pulled by a string inclined at 60° to the horizontal as shown. The tension in the

string is 16 N. Sketch a Free Body Diagram for the mass, showing all the forces present. If the object is seen to move with a constant acceleration of 1 m/s?, calculate the coefficient of friction between the object and the plane.
