Two blocks rest on slopes of unequal angles, connected by a rope passing over a pulley. If the blocks equal masses, will they remain at rest? Why? Neglect friction.

  • Physics -

    No, they will not remain at rest in the absence pof friction. The mass on the steeper slope will slide downhill. It exerts a greater force on the rope than the other mass.
