In Fig, a slab of mass m1 =40 kg rests on a frictionless floor, and a block of mass m2 =10kg rests on top of the slab. Between block and slab, the coefficient of static friction is 0.60, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.40. A horizontal force of magnitude 100 N begins to pull directly on the block, as shown. In unit-vector notation, what are the resulting accelerations of (a) the block and (b) the slab?

A particle is subjected to the action of two forces : F1 = 41+ 3 + 6 k [ kN ] and F2 = 51-61 -5k [ kN ] . The coordinate direction angle of the resultant force with the X - axis is

A particle, which remains at rest, is acted on by three forces F, G and H. The force F has magnitude 18N and is directed to the left and down, making an angle of 40 degrees with the vertical. The force G has magnitude 15N and is directed to the right and down, making an angle of 70 degrees with the horizontal. Find the magnitude of the vector H and the acute angle it makes with the horizontal.
