1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 62 kg crate is dragged across a floor by pulling on a rope attached to the crate and inclined 16° above the horizontal. (a) If the coefficient of static friction is 0.57, what minimum force magnitude is required from the rope to start the crate moving? (b) If μk = 0.31, what is the magnitude of the initial acceleration (m/s^2) of the crate? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Attempt of number (a) fs=Fn*Ms Let Fn + Tsin15=mg Fn = mg - Tsin15 Attempt of number (b) ma= Tcos15 - fk (Do I need to subtract fs in this equation?) fs=magnitude of static friction. In this case, it's the maximum value of static friction. Fn=normal force T= tension of the rope fk=magnitude of kinetic friction. Are the equations of my attempts correct ? How do find tension ? or is there anyway to cancel it out ?
