Question
*32. A 10-kg block rests on a table for which the coefficient
of static friction between the block and the tabletop is exactly
0.4. The block is connected to a knot by a horizontal string.
Another block hangs from the knot, and another string goes
up at an angle 30° to a wall, as shown at right. How large can
the mass m be before the 10-kg block begins to move to the
right?
30°
10 kg
