Physics 125 Discussion #7 Solution 1 Problem 1: Push a Box on an Incline Plane When a force of 500 N pushes on a 25-kg box as shown in the figure below, the acceleration of the box up the incline is 0.75 m/s 2 . Friction can NOT be neglected. (1) First, let’s define our coordinate system as shown in the figure above. (2) Draw a free-body diagram for box. (Hint: there are four forces acting on the box.) (3) Find the x- and y- components of each force. (Use symbols. Let 40 0 = θ .)
