A man applies a 35 N force to push a 5 kg suitcase up a 30° ramp into the baggage check-in area at the airport. If k = 0.10, what is the acceleration of the suitcase up the ramp? (sin30 = 0.5, cos30 = 0.866). FAFA m θ kk a = ?

Reading Debrief What is static friction? What is the difference between static friction and kinetic friction? What equation would I use to solve for static friction?
Reading Debrief Remember back to our mu-shoe lab. We had to apply a force to a shoe on different surfaces. The force we applied was the highest amount of force we could apply before the shoe just started to move. In this case, what formula would we use to determine the static friction force? (Hint – at this point, the applied force is opposing the maximum static friction force.)
