The coefficient of static friction between the 2.3 kg crate and the 35.0° incline of Figure P4.47 is 0.241. What minimum force, F, must be applied to the crate perpendicular to the incline to prevent the crate from sliding down the incline?

  • physics -

    ΣF(x) = 0: m•g•sinα=F(fr)
    ΣF(y) = 0: m•g•cosα +F = N
    F(fr)=μ•N= μ• (m•g•cosα +F)
    m•g•sinα= μ• (m•g•cosα +F)
    F=(m•g/μ) •(sinα -μ• cosα)
