Unformatted text preview: t, Skaff and Tamtsia 5. (10 marks) Two blocks A and B are connected by a rigid bar of negligible weight. Each block has a weight of 10 N. If the coefficient of static friction between each block and the surface is ￿S = 0.5, determine the maximum value of the force P that is possible if the system is not to slip. 6. (12 marks) A ball is thrown from the top of a 20 m high tower with an initial velocity of 10 m/s in the direction shown. (a) Determine the x and y coordinates of the point at which the ball strikes the slope. (b) Determine the velocity of the ball at the point at which it strikes the slope.
