# A block of mass 5 kg is placed on a rough table. the coefficient of static and kinetic friction between surfaces of block and table be 0.4 and 0.3 respectively. if the force F exerted on the block is 10N (g=10m/s^2) the force of friction between the block and the table is ------------------. explain briefly.

### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
Mass of block = 5 kg
coefficient of static friction,  = 0.4
coefficient of kinetic friction = 0.3

limiting friction =
×m×g=0.4×5×10 = 20N

Until a force greater than 20N is applied, the block won't move. For any force F ≤ limiting friction, the value of friction will be F since friction is a self-adjusting force.

So when a force 10N is applied, the friction between block and table is 10N.
