1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A block of mass .5 kg is on a wedge of mass 2.00 kg. The inclined surface makes an angle of 40 degrees with the horizontal. The wedge is subjected to a horizontqal force F and slides on a frictionless horizontal surface. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the wedge is .6 Find the range of values of F for which the block does not slide.
