To find its weight,
4000 lb×0.45349 kg1 lb=1813.96 kg
w=(1813.96)(9.8)=17777N
2×104 N

Use the following conversion factors

1 N = 0.225 lbs

1 ton = 2,000 lbs

So convert tons into newton

1.7 tons×2000 lbs1 ton×1N0.225 lbs

you get that it equals

15000 N

A 30.0 kg block is resting on a flat horizontal table. On topof this block is resting a 15.0 kg block, to which a horizontal spring is attached. The spring constant of the spring is 325 N/m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the lower block and the table is 0.600, and the coefficient of static friction between the two blocks is 0.900. A horizontal force is applied to the lower block. This force is increasing in such a way as to keep the blocks moving at a constant speed. At the point where the upper block begins to slip on the lower block,determine (a) the amount by which the spring is compressed and (b) the magnitude of the force F.
