Two blocks, A and B (with mass 50 kg and 100 kg, respectively), are connected by a string, as shown in Figure. The pulley is frictionless and of negligible mass. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block A and the incline is µk = 0.29. Determine the change in the kinetic energy of block A as it moves from C to D, a distance of 22 m up the incline if the system starts from rest© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 7:13 pm ad1c9bdddf
This solution contains a force body diagram to help determine the change in kinetic energy from C to D using concepts of trigonometry, inclined planes and kinetic friction.
