**drwls**, Wednesday, March 3, 2010 at 7:04amIs the 0.540mg 0.540 milligrams or 0.54m * g? I will assume the latter.

For case (a), the maximum possible static friction force is

Fs = (m*g cos16* - 0.54m*g sin16)*Us

= 0.487 m g

The horizontal component of applied force is 0.540m*g*cos 16 = 0.519 m*g. Since this exceeds the maximum possible static friction force, the block slips and accelerates at a rate determined by

kinetic friction.

The friction force in the horizontal direction must be recomputed and subtracted from the applied force component in that direction.

For case (b), proceed similarly
