Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The system is balanced so that the 55 N block on the left and the 10 kg block on the right dont quite slip. The suspended block has a mass of 3 kg and the angle is 41 . The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 55 N 1 10 kg 2 3 kg 4 1 Find the coefficient of friction 1 for the 3 kg block for this to be true. Correct answer: 0 . 614924. Explanation: Let : = 41 , m 1 = 3 kg , m 2 = 10 kg , W = 55 N , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Basic Concepts At equilibrium, summationdisplay F net = ma = 0 both vertically and horizontally. Solution Let T 1 be the tension in the left string and T 2 be the tension in the right string. Consider the free body diagrams for W , the point of attachment of the three strings, and the mass m 2 T 1 1 N 1 N 1 W 55 N T 2 T x 2 T y 2 1 N 1 m 1 g 2 N 2 T 2 N 2 m 2 g 10 kg For the weight W , the weight W acts down, the normal force N 1 acts up, the tension T 1 acts to the right and friction 1 N 1 acts to the left so that vertically F net = N 1W = 0 N 1 = W and horizontally F net = T 1 1 N 1 = 0 T 1 = 1 W . (1) For the point of attachment of the three strings, the weight m 1 g acts down, T 1 acts to the left, T 2 sin acts up and T 2 cos acts to the right so that vertically F net = m 1 g T 2 sin = 0 T 2 = m 1 g sin , (2) and horizontally F net = T 1 T 2 cos = 0 T 1 = T 2 cos . (3) For the mass m 2 , the weight m 2 g acts down, N 2 acts up, T 2 acts to the left and friction 2 N 2 acts to the right so that vertically F net = m 2 gN 2 = 0 N 2 = m 2 g , hanna (brh687) hk 5 Opyrchal (11105) 2 and horizontally F net = T 2 2 N 2 = 0 T 2 = 2 m 2 g . (4) From Eqs. 1, 2, and 3, we obtain 1 = T 1 W = T 2 cos W = m 1 g cos W sin = (3 kg) ( 9 . 8 m / s 2 ) cos 41 (55 N) sin 41 = . 614924 . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the coefficient of friction 2 for the 10 kg block for this to be true. Correct answer: 0 . 457276. Explanation: From Eqs. 2 and 4, we have 2 = T 2 m 2 g = m 1 g m 2 g sin = m 1 m 2 sin = (3 kg) (10 kg) sin 41 = . 457276 . 003 10.0 points At the beginning of a new school term, a student moves a box of books by attaching a rope to the box and pulling with a force of F = 95 . 7 N at an angle of 56 , as shown in the figure. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . The box of books has a mass of 15 kg and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the bottom of the box and the floor is 0 . 49....
