Statement of a problem № 10745


To measure the static friction coefficient between a 1.6-kg block and a vertical wall, the setup shown in the drawing is used. A spring (spring constant = 510 N/m) is attached to the block. Someone pushes on the end of the spring in a direction perpendicular to the wall until the block does not slip downward. The spring is compressed by 0.039 m. What is the coefficient of static friction?
