Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 0 points The surfaces between a 6 kg block and the 23 kg wedge and between the 23 kg wedge and the horizontal plane is smooth (without friction). The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . A block is released on the inclined plane (top side of the wedge). 6 k g μ = 29 ◦ 23 kg μ = 0 F 9 . 8m / s 2 What is the force F which must be exerted on the 23 kg block in order that the 6 kg block does not move up or down the plane? Correct answer: 157 . 535 N. Explanation: Let : m A = 23 kg , block A m B = 6 kg , block B θ = 29 ◦ , and μ s = 0 between A and B . Using Newton’s second law, the accelera tion of the wedge of mass 23 kg and block of mass 6 kg is a AB = F m A + m B (1) Consider the free body diagram for block B m g s i n θ N μ N mg a AB The condition that block B does not move with respect to wedge A implies that its ac celeration down the wedge with respect to the wedge is zero. Applying Newton’s second law for B in the direction parallel and perpendic ular to the wedge yields X F ⊥ : N  m B g cos θ = m B a AB sin θ (1) X F k : m B g sin θ μ N = m B a AB cos θ (2) Using Eq. 1 to solve for the normal force N exerted on block B by block A , we have N = m B ( g cos θ + a AB sin θ ) . Substituting N from Eq. 1 into Eq. 2, but since μ = 0 , we have m B g sin θ = m B a AB cos θ Solving for a AB , we have a AB = g sin θ cos θ = g tan θ = (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) tan29 ◦ = (9 . 8 m / s 2 )(0 . 554309) = 5 . 43223 m / s 2 . Therefore the force F is F = ( m A + m B ) a AB = (23 kg + 6 kg)(5 . 43223 m / s 2 ) = 157 . 535 N . 002 (part 1 of 1) 0 points A force F acts to the right on a(n) 6 . 67631 kg block. A(n) 2 . 25761 kg block is stacked on top of the 6 . 67631 kg block, with a coefficient of friction of 0 . 2 between the blocks. The table has a coefficient of friction of 0 . 249. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . The system is in equilibrium.
