Block A in the figure weighs w1 and block B weighs w1. The coefficient of kinetic friction between all surfaces is uk.
1. Find the magnitude of the horizontal force necessary to drag block B to the left at constant speed if A rests on B and moves with it (figure (a)).
2. Find the magnitude of the horizontal force necessary to drag block B to the left at constant speed if A is held at rest (figure (b)).
This solution involves finding the magnitude of horizontal force between surfaces.
Finding the magnitude of horizontal net force
A 1580 kg car is traveling with a speed of 15.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the horizontal net force that is required to bring the car to a halt in a distance of 50.0 m?View Full Posting Details
