Looking at the x component of (eq. 1) yields Ma F s = , where M is the mass of the crate and where I set a x = -a ( i.e. deceleration). Looking at the y component of (eq. 1) yields = Mg F N and hence Mg F N = since a y = 0. We know that (F s ) max = s F N and hence 2 2 max max / 45 . 2 ) / 8 . 9 )( 25 .

First lets calculate the minimum static coeffiecient of friction such that the block does not move (i.e. a x = 0). Looking at the x-component of (eq. 1) yields cos = = x s Ma F F , where M is the mass of the block. Looking at the y-component of (eq. 1) yields sin = + Mg F F N since a y = 0. We know that F s = s F N and hence ) sin ( cos = F Mg F s (eq. 1) and solving for s gives F x-axis y-axis F N F g F k F s x-axis y-axis F N F g crate V PHY2048 Fall 2009 Homework Set 5 Solutions University of Florida Page 2 of 6 Department of Physics 5668 . ) 20 sin( 2 ) 20 cos( sin 5 . cos 5 . sin cos ) ( min = = = = o o Mg Mg Mg F Mg F s .
