Explanation:According to the given situation,

work done = change in kinetic energy

As the formula of kinetic energy is as follows.

K.E =

Putting the given values into the above formula as follows.

K.E =

=

= 22.5 J

Also we know that,

Work done = force x distance

or, force =

=

= 5.62 N

In the given case, force is friction and formula to calculate friction is as follows.

friction =

where, = the coefficient of friction

Putting the given values into the above formula as follows.

Friction =

5.62N =

= 0.114

Thus, we can conclude that

the coefficient of kinetic friction between the floor and the given box is 0.114.
