# Problem: A 0.60-kg book slides on a horizontal table. The kinetic friction force on the book has magnitude 1.6 N .How much work is done on the book by friction during a displacement of 2.7 m to the left?The book now slides 2.7 m to the right, returning to its starting point. During this second 2.7-m displacement, how much work is done on the book by friction?What is the total work done on the book by friction during the complete round trip?On the basis of your answer to part C, would you say that the friction force is conservative or nonconservative?

###### Problem Details

A 0.60-kg book slides on a horizontal table. The kinetic friction force on the book has magnitude 1.6 N .

How much work is done on the book by friction during a displacement of 2.7 m to the left?

The book now slides 2.7 m to the right, returning to its starting point. During this second 2.7-m displacement, how much work is done on the book by friction?

What is the total work done on the book by friction during the complete round trip?

On the basis of your answer to part C, would you say that the friction force is conservative or nonconservative?
