  1. Mar 26, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    a 30 kg is restin on a flat horizontal table. on top of this block rests a 15 kg block, to which a horizontal spring is attached, as shown in the drawing. the spring constant is 325N/m. the coefficient of kinetic friction between the lower block and the table is 0.600, and the coefficient of static friction between the two block is 0.900. a force F is applied to the lower block. this force is increasing in such a way as to keep the the blocks moving in a constant speed
