**Unformatted text preview: **5.122: The normal force that the ramp exerts on the box will be n = w cos - T sin . The rope provides a force of T cos up the ramp, and the component of the weight down the ramp is w sin . Thus, the net force up the ramp is F = T cos - w sin - k ( w cos - T sin ) = T (cos + k sin ) - w(sin + k cos ). The acceleration will be the greatest when the first term in parantheses is greatest; as in Problems 5.77 and 5.123, this occurs when tan = k . ...
