dear sanket sit

all answer r correct

Occasionally it is maintained that µ is always < 1, but this is not true.a tire on concrete may have a coefficient of friction of 1.7.

The coefficient of friction is an empirical measurement – it has to be measured experimentally, and cannot be found through calculations. Rougher surfaces tend to have higher effective values. Most dry materials in combination have friction coefficient values between 0.3 and 0.6. Values outside this range are rarer, but teflon, for example, can have a coefficient as low as 0.04


The coefficient of kinetic friction is  usually less than the coefficient of static friction for the same materials. In fact, Richard Feynman reports that "with dry metals it is very hard to show any difference." Finally, new models are beginning to show how kinetic friction can be greater than static friction.

Please tell me how to find the net resistance in this case.please see pic.
It would only be solved after applyinh KVL in loop 3-3-3 ohm resistances and loop 3-4-5 resistances. Or U can also tryy with KCl. As wheat stone bridge consditions doesn't satifies here.
