A 2kg block is resting on a rough incline which is at a 30 degree angle.
Which is larger, the normal force or the force of friction?
How far up the ramp (in the direction along the ramp) does the block go before it comes to a stop?
A 4.25-kg block is sent up a ramp inclined at an angle θ = 31.5° from the horizontal. It is given an initial velocity v0 = 15.0 m/s up the ramp. Between the block and the ramp, the coefficient of... more
A 9.00 kg hanging weight is connected by a string over a pulley to a 5.00 kg block that is sliding on a flat table.
If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.230, find the tension in the string. http://www.webassign.net/sb5/p5-49.gif
