Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lisa on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at 1:59pm.

In a pulley system, can the force of friction equal the tension in the rope? Let's say there is a mass on a table connected to a pulley system (placed at the corner of the table), while the other mass hangs from the table ... can the force of friction equal the tension? Because I need to find the mass of the object hanging.

if the mass of the object on the table is m = 15 kg, the static friction coefficient is 0.75 and g= 9.8
