Unformatted text preview: Consider a block of mass m sliding on a ﬁxed inclined plane which is tilted an angle θ from the horizontal. The coeﬃcient of friction between the block and the plane is μ = tan θ . The block is being held at rest, and at t = 0, it is given a tap in the horizontal direction (i.e. perpendicular to the incline) which gives it an initial speed v . Assume the inclined plane is essentially inﬁnite, so that you don’t need to worry about the block ever falling oﬀ the inclined plane. What is the speed of the block as t → ∞ ? d d A B C Q v Problem 7 Extra Credit...
