Homework Help: A box attached to a pulley on a ramp

  1. Nov 27, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Mass of box: 27.0 kg
    mass of bucket attached to pulley: 25.0 kg
    incline:35 degrees
    static friction:.650
    kinetic friciton: .490

    Okay, there is a box on an incline. The box is attached to a pulley. A bucket is attached to the other end of the pulley. The bucket is going straight down
    Its actually a few questions. What is the applied force on the box? What is the friction exerted on the box by the ramp? Does the box remain at rest relative to the ramp? What is the net acceleration on the box?

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Okay i figured out that the applied friction is 152N. and the friction force is 93N (i think).
    I just know where to start to find the rest.
