Block M, with block m on top, executes SHM on frictionless surface. Find maximum amplitude for which m remains in place.
A block of mass M= 10 kg is on a frictionless horizontal surface. A small block whose mass is m= 1.0 kg is placed on the larger block. The coefficient of friction between the two blocks is u= .40. The two blocks execute SHM with a period T= 1.5 sec. Find Xm, the maximum amplitude possible, for which the small block does not sli
