3.70 kg + 2.30 kg (b) The result for a is positive, indicating that the acceleration of block 1 is indeed up the incline and that the acceleration of block 2 is vertically down.

where F = 6.0 N and m = 2.5 kg is the mass of the block. 4 PHY2048 Spring 2014 HW3 (a) In this case, P = 8.0 N leads to FN = (2.5 kg)(9.8 m/s2) – 8.0 N = 16.5 N. Using Eq. 6 1, this implies f s ,max = µ s FN = 6.6 N , which is larger than the 6.0 N rightward force – so the block (which was initially at rest) does not move. Putting a = 0 into the first of our equations above yields a static friction force of f = P = 6.0 N. (b) In this case, P = 10 N, the normal force is FN = (2.5 kg)(9.8 m/s2) – 10 N = 14.5 N. Using Eq. 6 1, this implies f s ,max = µ s FN = 5.8 N , which is less than the 6.0 N rightward force – so the block does move. Hence, we are dealing not with static but with kinetic friction, which Eq. 6 2 reveals to be f k = µk FN = 3.6 N . 6P11. (a) The free body diagram for the crate is shown on the !

is the normal force of the floor on the crate, mg is the !
force of gravity, and f is the force of friction. We take the +x direction to be horizontal to the right and the +y direction to be up. We assume the crate is motionless. The equations for the x and the y components of the force according to Newton’s second law are: T cos θ – f = 0 T sin θ + FN − mg = 0 where θ = 15° is the angle between the rope and the horizontal. The first equation gives f = T cos...
