I've been staring at this problem for a loonnng time and i just cant figure it out:(.. i would appreciate it if someone could help me...thx! :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A large block with mass 26 kg executes

horizontal simple harmonic motion as it slides

across a frictionless surface with a frequency

1:9 Hz : Block smaller block with mass 9 kg

rests on it, and the

coefcient of static friction between the two is

u = 0.459.

The acceleration of gravity is 9:8.

What maximum amplitude of oscillation

can the system have if the block is not to slip?

Answer in units of cm.
