Physics 211 10/2 HW Handout Due Friday 10/4 Fall 2002 Block on a Ramp 1) A hand pushes on a 5.0kg block with a force of 30N directed parallel to the ramp. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction are μ s = 0.5 and μ k = 0.4 respectively. The ramp makes an angle of angle 24 ° with the horizontal. a) Draw a FBD of the block showing all the forces acting on the block. At this point you do not know about or F net or the acceleration. b) Find the magnitudes of all the forces (except friction) acting on the block. You will need to separate the Weight force into x and y components. Show your work. c) Find out whether the friction force is the static or kinetic type, and find its magnitude and direction. Show your reasoning. d) Find F net , magnitude and direction. Show your work. e) For each of the following, briefly explain why each one is possible or not possible.
