A block of mass 2kg is at rest on horizontal floor of a truck. The coefficient of static friction between the block and floor is 0.7. If the truck starts to move with a horizontal acceleration of 4 m/s^2, the frictional force on the block is?(if g=10m/s^2) a)0N b)4N c)8N d)14N Plz explain..

because frictional force f=u mg where u=coeff of static fric and f=0.7*2*10 =14 n
