# Newton's Second Law Acceleration of a mass on plane connected

A mass M= 6.2 kg on a plane inclined at angle 33Â° is connected by a cord parallel to the plane then over a frictionless, massless pulley to a suspended rock of mass R. The friction coefficient, Âµ=.25 between the mass and the plane.

(See pictures in attachment File #1.)

Find the mass of the rock for the following situations:

a. The rock is accelerating downward with acceleration a= 2.27 nt/kg.

b. The rock is accelerating upward with acceleration a= 1.17 nt/kg.

c. The rock is moving upward with constant speed.

d. The rock is moving downward with constant speed.
