Homework Statement
what is the angle the force should apply in order to be box number 1 in static position and box number 2 move
Homework Equations
F=ma
Since all starts from rest, you only need to get mass 2 to start moving while mass 1 stays still. That means you only need to overcome static friction on the one and not on the other. Kinetic friction does not enter into the equations at all.rashida564 said:
The angle of applied force is the angle between the direction of the applied force and the surface or object upon which it is acting.
The angle of applied force can be measured using a protractor or by using trigonometric functions to calculate the angle based on the known sides of a right triangle.
The angle of applied force is important because it affects the magnitude and direction of the resulting force on an object. It can determine whether the force will cause an object to move, stay in place, or rotate.
The angle of applied force affects the work and energy involved in a system. When the applied force is perpendicular to the displacement of an object, it does positive work and increases the object's energy. When the angle is acute or obtuse, the work done and energy involved will be less than the maximum possible value.
When the angle of applied force is 0 or 180 degrees, the applied force has no component in the direction of motion. This means that the force will not do any work on the object and the object's kinetic energy will remain constant.
