Question

A 50 kg crate is at rest on the floor, and you need to move it across a room. The floor you are moving it across has a coefficient of static friction of 0.5 and a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.3. In order to move it across the room, first you need to move it 5 m to the left, then 7 m forward, then finally 3 m to the right. How much work do you do on the box in order to move it across the room?
