Newton Laws

  1. Dec 4, 2011 #1
    Two crates (m1 = 10.9 kg and m2 = 16.0 kg) are connected with a rope as shown. An applied force of 131 N with an elevation angle of 37.0° applied to m1 accelerates the masses to the right. The mass m1 does not come off the ground, which has a coefficient of friction of 0.328.

    A. What are the components of the applied force?
    FAX: FAY:
    B. What are the magnitudes of the friction forces on each crate?
    FF1: FF2:
    C. What is the acceleration of the crates?
    D. What is the tension in the rope?
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
