Two bodies with the same magnitude of acceleration – Application of Newton’s law of motion problems and solutions

1. Two masses m1 = 2 kg and m2 = 5 kg are on inclined plane and are connected together by a string as shown in the figure. The coefficient of the kinetic friction between m1 and incline is 0.2 and the coefficient of the kinetic friction between m2 and incline is 0.1. (a) Determine …

Equilibrium of the bodies on a inclined plane – application of the Newton’s first law problems and solutions

1. A 2-kg block lies on a rough inclined plane at an angle 37o to the horizontal. Determine the magnitude of the external force exerted on the block, so the block is not slides down the plane. (sin 37o = 0.6, cos 37o = 0.8, g = 10 m.s-2, µk = 0.2) Known : Mass …
