# Sliding Plates

Not what you're looking for?

Each of the three plates has a mass of 10kg. If the coefficients of static and kinetic friction at each surface of contact are us = 0.3 and uk = 0.2 respectively, determine the acceleration of each plate when the three horizontal forces are applied.

See attachment for diagram.

##### Solution Summary

The solution explains how the forces would act on the surfaces, plate by plate, according to classical mechanics.
