SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters.
A box whose mass is 5 kg is on a frictionless horizontal surface. A force P is applied to the box in a direction 25 degrees above horizontal.
PART a. Find the maximum value of P for which the box stays in contact with the floor.
PART b. Find the acceleration when this force is applied.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:13 pm ad1c9bdddf
PART a. Step 1.
Creating or observing a careful diagram should be the first step of a solution. Observing ATTACHMENT #1, you note that the only forces on the box are P, N, and M g. ...
The expert finds the maximum force and acceleration of a sliding crate. The frictionless horizontal surface is given.
