We take our +x axis to the right and +y axis upward for the blocks A and C and positive direction downward for

Newtons 2 nd law yields A & C x : 0 = T f A & C y : 0 = N W A W C B: 0 = W B T W B = f If the minimum weight of block C is on A, the blocks A and C are on the verge of sliding. Thus we have f = f s, max = N = (W A + W C ) W B = (W A + W C ) W C = W B / - W A = 73.3 N b) Block C suddenly is lifted off A . What is the acceleration of block A if k between A and the table is 0.150? In our coordinate system, a A = a B = a. Newtons 2 nd law yields A x : m A a = T f A y : 0 = N W A B: m B a = W B T (m A + m B )a = W B- k (W A ) a= (W B- k W A )g/( W B + W A ) = 3.04 m/s 2...
