Solve: (a) gives gives (b) gives gives (c) gives gives Reflect: In each stage the upward force is greater than the downward force, the acceleration is upward, opposite to and the speed decreases. 5.76. Set Up: Constant speed means Use Newton’s 3 rd law to relate forces on A and on B . Solve: (a) Treat A and B as a single object of weight The free-body diagram for this com- bined object is given in Figure 5.76a. gives gives Figure 5.76 (b) The free-body force diagrams for blocks A and B are given in Figure 5.76b. n and are the normal and friction forces applied to block B by the tabletop and are the same as in part (a). is the friction force that A applies to B . It is to the right because the force from A opposes the motion of B . is the downward force that A exerts on B . is the friction force that B applies to A . It is to the left because block B wants A to move with it. is the normal force that block B exerts on A . By Newton’s third law, and these forces are in opposite directions. Also, and these forces are in opposite directions.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
