# Question on friction [closed]

Please look at the figure carefully. The question is written, and one has to match the two columns 1 and 2 given under "choices and explanation". Please tell me if I am really wrong, i.e. would you match C with both 1 and 3, or just 3. (my answer and the right answer is shown at the right hand side)

Thanks!

• yaar, I did not ask for an answer. It is just for confirming if I havent gone horribly wrong! – Saurabh Raje May 25 '13 at 17:37

The friction is static and just opposes the external force. Hence the friction force is just $4.5N$, and body will remain at rest.
