 Homework Statement:

Unknown object has a mass of 3.2kg on steel plank.
Add forces:
magnitude of applied force =22.8N
magnitude of acceleration =3.02m/s^2
What is the material?
 Relevant Equations:
 Newton's Second Law

Given the utterly ambiguous problem statement, I'd say the answer is clearly "something will happen"Homework Statement: Unknown object has a mass of 3.2kg on steel plank.

I don't know either. Can you provide a better description of the problem, and maybe an attempt at the solution?

No, it's not "open ended", it's utterly ambiguous. It's NOT that it has multiple possible answers ("open ended"), it's that it has no answer at all because you have not defined the problem.I agree that it is a very openended question
The question I believe is asking just to determine the material based off the information given by using Newton's Second Law to find the coefficient of friction between the two materials. I have attempted this question did not get a reasonable result. Sorry if the post was not clear, hopefully this makes it less ambiguous.
