A cord connected at one end to a block which can slide on an inclined plane has its other end wrapped around a cylinder resting in a depression at the top of the plane as shown in the figure (Intro 1 figure) . Determine the speed of the block after it has traveled 1.80 m along the plane, starting from rest.
Assume the coefficient of friction between all surfaces is mu = 3.70Ã—10âˆ’2. [Hint: In part B first determine the normal force on the cylinder, and make any reasonable assumptions needed.]
