please help!! A normal force of 38 newtons acts on a book lying on a table. If the coefficient of static friction is 1.2, what is the minimum applied force required to slide the book? a-32 newtons b-46 newtons c-38 newtons d-42 newtons

OpenStudy (gorv):

force of friction = normal force * coefficient of friction

OpenStudy (gorv):

minimum applied force = force of friction
