Find the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of block B after the system is gently released and has begun to move.


9. The figure shows a block of mass m resting on a 20° slope. The block has coefficients of friction and with the surface of the slope. It is connected using a very light string over an ideal pulley to a hanging block of mass 2.0 kg. The string above the slope pulls parallel to the surface. What is the minimum mass m so the system will remain at rest when it is released from rest?


A) 2.1 kg B) 3.3 kg C) 1.3 kg D) 3.6 kg

  2. 3. V = Vo + a*t = 0.
    25 + a*8 = 0, a = -3.1025 m/s^2

    Thrust = M*a = 958/9.8 * (-3.125) = -305.5 N.

    5. M*g = 3.0 * 9.8 = 29.4 N. = Wt. of block = Normal(Fn).
    Fs = u*Fn = 0.4 * 29.4 = 11.8 N.

    7. M*g = 50 * 9.8 = 490 N. = Wt. of box = Normal(Fn).
    Fk = u*Fn = 0.35*490 = 171.5 N.

    F - Fk = M*a.
    F = Fk + M*a = 171.5 + 50*1.2 = 231.5 N.
