A force of 35.0 N is required to start a 6.0-kg box moving across a horizontal concrete floor.

  1. What is the coefficient of static friction between the box and the floor?
  2. If the 35.0-N force continues, the box accelerates at $0.60 \textrm{ m/s}^2$. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction?
