Question

A wooden box containing several objects slides down a ramp at a constant speed when the ramp is inclined at 18°. The total mass of the box and its contents is 6.3 kg. A second box of equal mass slides down a different ramp at a constant speed. The second ramp is inclined at 26°. Compare the coefficients of friction of the two ramps.

  • Two blocks are connected by a massless rope. The rope passes over an ideal (frictionless and massless) pulley such that one block with mass m1 = 12 kg is on a horizontal, frictionless table and the other block with mass m2 = 7.5 kg hangs vertically. Both blocks experience gravity and the tension force, T. Use the coordinate system specified in the diagram. Solve for the magnitude of the acceleration, a1, of the block of mass m1, in meters per square second.  Find the magnitude of the tension in the rope, T, in newtons.
    A block with a mass of m = 45 kg rests on a frictionless surface and is subject to two forces acting on it. The first force is directed in the negative x-direction with a magnitude of F1. The second has a magnitude of F2 and acts on the body at an angle θ = 17° measured from horizontal, as shown. 1) Write an expression for the magnitude of the normal force, FN, acting on the block, in terms of F2 and the other variables of the problem. Assume that the surface it rests on is rigid.  2) The two forces change such that F1 = 9.5 N and F2 = 23.5 N. Based on this change, the block may no longer be in static equilibrium. Find the block's acceleration in the x-direction, ax, in meters per second squared.
