**Elena**, Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 2:11pmThe equation of motion is (in vector form)

vector (m•g) + vector F(fr)+ vector N+vectorF =0

Projections on the axes

x: F•cosα-F(fr) = 0

y: -mg+N+F•sinα = 0

F(fr) = F•cosα,

N =mg- F•sinα,

F(fr) = k•N =k•(mg- F•sinα),

F•cosα= k•(mg- F•sinα),

k = F•cosα/(mg- F•sinα) =

= 45•0.866/(50•9.8-45•0.5) = 0.083.

W= W(F) + W(fr)=F•cosα•s +F(fr) •s=

= F•cosα•s +k•N•s =

= s• (F•cosα + k•(mg - F•sinα)) =

=500 (45•0.866 + 0.083•(50•9.8 - 45•0.5)=38885 J
