What is the wagon's acceleration?

acceleration a = 2d/t^2 = 14.2*2/8^2 = 0.444 m/sec^2

What is the magnitude of the force of friction acting on the wagon in the previous question, if the loaded wagon has a mass of 175.0 kg?

accelerating force Fa = m*a = 0.444*175 = 77.66 N

friction force Ff = F-Fa = 132.86-77.66 = 55.20 N
