A block of mass m= 3 kg is initially at rest on a horizontal surface. At time t=0, we begin pushing on it with a horizontal force that varies with time as F(t)=βt2, where β= 1.2 N/s2. We stop pushing at time t1=5 s [F(t)=0 for t>t1]. (a) First, assume the surface ...

Is the 0.20 a static friction coefficient? Is the 0.10 a kinetic friction coefficient? Those are the types you need to solve the problem. First calculate the maximum friction force (Ftop) that the top block can withstand without sliding. M(top)*g *0.2 = Ftop Then calculate the...
