1. Block A weights 356N and block B weights 71N. The coefficients of friction between all surfaces of contact are μ s = 0.20 and μ k = 0.15. Knowing that P = 44.5 N →, determine (a) the acceleration of block B, (b) the tension in the cord. (B.,J.&C. 12.17)

2. To transport a series of bundles of shingles A to a roof, a contractor uses a motor -driven lift consisting of a horizontal platform BC which rides on rails attached to the sides of a ladder. The lift starts from rest and initially moves with a constant acceleration a 1 as shown. The lift then decelerates at a constant rate a 2 and comes to rest at D , near the top of the ladder. Knowing that the coefficient of static friction between the bundle of shingles and the horizontal platform is 0.30, determine the largest allowable acceleration a 1 and the largest allowable deceleration a 2 if the bundle is not to slide on the platform. (B., J. & C. 12.24)
