It has 3 different parts. The first two I was able to solve. Part 3 asks: Suppose the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the inclined plane is muk = 0.36. If M2 = 217.1 kg, what is the magnitude of the acceleration of M1?

Can someone please explain how to do this?

**drwls**, Wednesday, December 12, 2007 at 11:19pmWrite two equations, which should be the equation of motion of the two separate bodies: block and bucket. There will be an unknown string tension force T is each equation, acting in opposite directions, but the unknown acceleration "a" will be the same for both bodies. Therefore you will have two equations in two unknowns and can solve for a.
