There is a table, and a napkin on it. The napkin has a mass m n=92. On the napkin, there is a tea cup with mass m c=199.

There is a table, and a napkin on it. The napkin has a mass mn=92.8 g. On the napkin, there is a tea cup with mass mc=199.2 g. What is the minimum force required for someone to pull the napkin out from under the tea cup? Assume that between the table and the napkin the friction is µk= 0.293, while the coefficient of static friction between the tea cup and the napkin is µs=0.637. Express your answer in Newtons.

  • I got a another answer and may be this is right. Since, corrected equation of motion of napkin is, " mn*a = F - uk*(mn + mc)*g + us*mc*g " and equation of motion of cup is, " mc*a = us*mc*g " Now put value of (a) from second equation to first equation, then we have net equation as , " mn*us*g = F - uk(mn + mc)*g + us*mc*g "
