A 13 N horizontal force pushes a block weighing 4.5 N against a vertical wall (Fig. 6-26). The coefficient of static friction between the wall and the block is 0.68, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.35. Assume that the block is not moving initially. In unit-vector ...

high school physics static friction
The system shown below is in equilibrium. Using the fact that block A is placed on a table, has a normal force of 40.2 N and it is not moving, what is the coefficient of static friction on block A? I know you can't answer this but if you have any suggestions: Calculate the ...

One last question: If a 12lb. block is slowly tilted from horizontal when the plank reaches 30 degrees the block begins to slide. To find the coefficient of the static friction you take the tangent form of 30 degrees? To find the friction force you multiply the coefficient of ...

A small block of mass m=1 kg glides down (without friction) a circular track of radius R=2 m, starting from rest at height R. At the bottom of the track it hits a massless relaxed spring with spring constant k= 11 N/m, which starts to be compressed as the block continues to ...

Physics
The blocks A and B are connected by a piece of spring. Block B rests on an inclined plane of 40 and block A hangs vertically. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block A and the inclined plane is 0.29. Calculate the acceleration of the system if the mass of block A is...

The two blocks in the figure, of mass m and M respectively, are not attached, but there is a coefficient of static friction u between them. The surface below the heavier block M is frictionless. What is the minimum force magnitude F required to keep the smaller block m from ...
