Limited access

A $16.0\text{ kg}$ block is pushed on a level floor. The force of the push is $115\text{ N}$ horizontally to the right (the positive direction). There is a horizontal force of friction on the block of $83.0\text{ N}$. What is the acceleration of the block?

A

$5.19 \text{ m/s}^2$ to the left.

B

$0.00 \text{ m/s}^2$ (The weight of the block is more than the push, so it will not move.)

C

$2.00 \text{ m/s}^2$ to the right.

D

$12.4 \text{ m/s}^2$ to the right.
