A 6.0 kg mass sits atop a larger 9.0 kg mass which itself sits on a horizontal table top. A third, 3.0 kg mass hangs vertically just barely touching the right face of the large mass. A massless inflexible...

A 3.0 kg block sits atop a 10.0 kg block and, initially, both are at rest. There is friction at the interface between the two blocks and the coefficients of static and kinetic friction are 0.60 and...

A string has a 3.5 kg block on one end and a 2.5 kg ball on the other. The system is suspended over a table, with the ball hanging down and the block resting on the table. Given that the table has...

Joe wishes to hang a sign weighing 950 N so that cable A attached to the store makes a 30 degree angle with the wall. Cable B is horizontal and attach to an adjoining building. What is the tension...

two blocks of equal mass m are tied to each other through a light string. One of the blocks is pulled along the line joining them with a constant force F. The tension in the string joining the bl...

Consider the 687 N weight held by two cables shown below. The left-hand cable had tension T2 and makes an angle of 37? with the ceiling. The right-hand cable had tension T1 and makes an angle...

At a building site, an iron girder of mass 400 kg is suspended from a crane by a steel cable. Assume that the cable has a circular cross-section of diameter 24 mm. a.What is the tensile force...
