1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A block of weight W is being pulled over a table by another weight Wo, as shown in the figure.
Find an algebraic formula for the steady velocity U of the block if it slides on an oil film of
thickness h and viscosity μ. The block bottom area A is in contact with the oil. Neglect the cord weight and the pulley friction.
