ACT: Magnitude of friction ACT: Magnitude of friction What is the magnitude of the static force in the system we just studied? A. 0.15 mg B. 0.33 mg C. 0.40 mg For the system to be at rest, f S should cancel out the resultant of the remaining forces (the net force without friction). Option C is beyond the maximum possible value. Option B would produce a net force to the left along the incline! net , no f r ict ion S,max 0.15 0.33 F mg f mg = = m 2m N 2mg mg T T f S 35 °
