Figure shows a block of mass resting on a slope. The block has coefficients of friction and with the surface. It is connected via a massless string over a massless, frictionless pulley to a hanging block of mass 2.0 kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i got this first one: What is the minimum mass that will stick and not slip?

1.83 kg

Correct

But can't get the second part:

If this minimum mass is nudged ever so slightly, it will start being pulled up the incline. What acceleration will it have?

Thank you! :)
