The key to answering these questions is to find the correct formula.

Once you've found the formula you need, which will be in your textbook, then it should be a case of applying it to the individual case.

Using this formular u=F/R were F is the frictional force and R is the normal reaction. R=mass*acceleration due to gravity(g). F=u*R
