1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Uploaded with ImageShack.us The problem is EXACTLY the same. But one thing concerns me. The answer key said the force is [tex]27\mu N \hat{i}[/tex] From Walter Lewin's method, I got [tex]+27\mu N \hat{i}[/tex]. Help? 3. The attempt at a solution

Flip the paper over. Then your ihat will point the same way his does.

@fp: He means left to right, not top to bottom. LOL

Seriously, Mr. Lewin clearly states that the force is toward the left.
Therefore, it's in the [tex]\hat{i}[/tex] direction.

Use thinner paper, write darker and/or use a light table.
