10. A 3 kg block moves up a 40° incline with constant speed under the action of a 26N force acting up and parallel to the incline. What magnitude force must act up and parallel to the incline for the block to move down the incline at constant velocity?

  1. Normal force = m g cos 40
    During trip up:
    Friction force down slope = mu m g cos 40
    Gravity force down slope = m g sin 40
    26 - m g sin 40 - mu m g cos 40 = 0
    solve that for mu, friction coef

    During trip down
    friction force now up slope
    F - m g sin 40 + mu m g cos 40 = 0
    solve that for F
