GE 208K: Chapter 6 Problem Sheet 6 1. A 25.0 kg block is initially at rest on a horizontal surface. A horizontal force of 75.0 N is required to set the block in motion. After it is in motion, a horizontal force of 60.0 N is required to keep the block moving with constant speed. Find the coefficients of static and kinetic friction. 2. Two blocks of mass 12.0 kg and 18.0 kg are connected by a rope of negligible mass. They are dragged by a horizontal force F of 68.0 N. The coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.100. Determine the tension T and the magnitude of the acceleration of the system. 3. A block weighing 75.0N rests on a plane inclined at 25 ° to the horizontal. A force F is applied to the object at 40.0 ° to the horizontal, pushing it upward on the plane. The coefficient of static and kinetic friction between the block and the plane are respectively, 0.363 and 0.156. a. What is the minimum value of F that will prevent the block from slipping down the plane?

    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.
