# Are Applied Force and Acceleration the same?

##
I'm correcting the work assigned to me in Physics30S and cannot find notes where they say that Applied Force and Acceleration are different variables.

No, these are not the same.

An alternative is to demonstrate the same through dimensional analysis.

No, applied force and acceleration are not the same. Applied force is the force exerted on an object by a person or another object, while acceleration is the rate at which an object's velocity changes over time.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- An object with a mass of #6 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k(x)= 1+cotx #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [(pi)/12, (3pi)/8], where x is in meters?
- Why do new shoes squeak?
- A crate with a mass of 12kg is sliding across the floor with a velocity of 8.8m/s. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.16, how far will it slide before coming to rest?
- An object with a mass of #1 kg# is pushed along a linear path with a kinetic friction coefficient of #u_k(x)= 3x^2-x+2 #. How much work would it take to move the object over #x in [1, 3], where x is in meters?
- An object, previously at rest, slides #5 m# down a ramp, with an incline of #(pi)/6 #, and then slides horizontally on the floor for another #24 m#. If the ramp and floor are made of the same material, what is the material's kinetic friction coefficient?
