Assignment 6 1. A hook is screwed into a ceiling; one end of a string is tied to the hook and the other end has an 8-kg mass attached to it. Assuming that the force of gravity acting on a mass m has magnitude mg, where g=9.8 m/s2, what force does the hook exert on the string. 2. A force of magnitude of 8 N pushes on a horizontally stacked set of blocks on a frictionless surface (figure below) with a masses m1 = 2 kg, m2 = 3 kg, m3 = 4 kg. a. What is the acceleration of the stack? b. What are the forces on block 1 as well as the net force on this block? c.

Unformatted text preview: Repeat part b for block 2. d. Repeat part b for block 3. 3. Two blocks of masses M and m are connected by a light rope that passes over a frictionless pulley. Mass M sits on an inclined plane with an angle of inclination of θ = 30 degree. The coefficient of static friction between mass M and the inclined plane is 0.2, while m = 3 kg. Determine the largest and smallest possible values of M for which the system remains in equilibrium. Calculate the force of static friction on the block of mass M if M = 6 kg. F = 8 M1 M2 M3 Solution 1. 2. 3....
