A block of a mass of 1 kg rests on the inclined surface of a wedge of a mass of 2.2 kg. The wedge is acted upon by a horizontal force F and slides on a frictionless surface. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s^2.
If the coefficient of static friction between the wedge and the block is .6 and the angle of the incline is 36 degrees,find the minimum value of F for which the block does not slip. Answer in N.
FInd the maximum value of F for which the block does not slip. Answer in N.
