1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A series of small packages, each with a mass of 0.5 kg, are discharged from a conveyor belt as shown. Knowing that the coefficient of static friction between each package and the conveyor belt is 0.4, determine (a) the force exerted by the belt on the package just after it has passed point A, (b) the angle θ defining the point B where the packages first slip relative to the belt. (The speed of belt is constant.) 2. Relevant equations sum of the forces in x = 0 sum of the forces in y = 0 3. The attempt at a solution I am stuck on the first part, I'm not sure how to incorporate the velocity given into the FBD of the package. Also, for part A would friction be omitted because the package won't be slipping relative to the belt?
