Am, = 1.55-kg aluminum block and a m, = 7.00-kg copper block are connected by a light string over a frictionless pulley. The
two blocks are allowed to move on a fixed steel block wedge (of angle e = 33.5°) as shown in the figure. (For aluminum on
steel, H. = 0.61 and H, = 0.47. For copper on steel, u. = 0.53 and u, = 0.36.)
