Question

1. A penguin wants to slide down a hill. If the coefficient of static friction between the penguin’s belly and the hill is μs, determine the minimum angle of the hill (θ) for which the penguin could lay down and begin sliding. 3. If a hill is inclined at 30° above horizontal, what’s the maximum coefficient of friction the penguin can have and still slide down? Determine the maximum coefficient if the hill is 45°. Do the values seem reasonable? (i.e. does it make sense which one is higher?)

A block is at rest on an inclined plane whose elevation can be
varied. The coefficient of static friction is
μs= 0.36, and the coefficient of kinetic
friction is μk = 0.16. The angle of elevation θ
is increased slowly from the horizontal.
At what value of θ does the block begin to slide (in
degrees)?
What is the acceleration of the block?

A 5 kg box sits on an inclined plane. If the coefficient of
static friction between the plane and the box is µs = 0.15. What is
the maximum angle θmax that the plane can be inclined without the
box sliding?

A block of mass m = 14.5 kg rests on an inclined plane
with a coefficient of static friction of μs =
0.16 between the block and the plane. The inclined plane is
L = 6.1 m long and it has a height of h = 3.8 m
at its tallest point.
A.What angle, θ in degrees, does the plane make with
respect to the horizontal?
B.What is the magnitude of the normal force,
FN in newtons, that acts on...

A mass of 6 kg rests on a floor with a coefficient of static
friction of 0.95 and coefficient kinetic friction of 0.30. One
force is applied vertically downward of 22 Newtons and another
force is applied at an angle of 28 degrees below the horizontal.
Calculate what the magnitude this force needs to be in order to
begin to move the mass. If that force is removed and another force
is applied at an angle of 28 degrees above...

The coefficient of
static friction between a certain hoop and a horizontal floor is
0.40. If the rotational inertia of the hoop about its symmetry axis
is given by I = MR2, then the magnitude of the maximum
acceleration in m/s2 the hoop can have without sliding
is:

Two children are sliding down a snowy hill which is inclined by
47.7 degrees with respect to horizontal. One has a rough sled which
has a coefficient of kinetic friction between it and the snow of
μk= 0.371; the other has a slippery sled which
has a coefficient of kinetic friction between it and the snow of
μk = 0.113. If both children start at the top
of the 48.1 m tall hill initially at rest, what is the difference...

If a plastic cup on a plastic dash has a static coefficient of
friction of around 0.15, what is the shortest amount of time (in s)
you can decelerate from 70mph to rest in so that the cup does not
slide?
a. Draw a free-body diagram for the plastic cup.
b. Write down the force-acceleration law of motion for the
horizontal and the vertical components of all the forces.
c. Use the inequality relating the normal and friction forces to...

At a mail sorting facility, packages slide down a ramp but are
stopped part way down the ramp so that they can be scanned. While
the packages are scanned, they are held in place by a horizontal
force from a spring‑loaded arm. Calculate the minimum force that
must be applied by this arm to hold a package on the ramp. The ramp
is at an angle of ?=31.5∘θ=31.5∘ with the horizontal. The package
has a mass of 9.25 kg.9.25 kg....

Two blocks made of different materials connected together by a
thin cord, slide down a plane ramp inclined at an angle θ
to the horizontal as shown in the figure(Figure 1)(block B is above
block A). The masses of the blocks are mA and mB
and the coefficients of friction are μA and
μB.
A) If mA=mB=5.2kg, and μA =
0.23 and μB = 0.33, determine the acceleration of
the blocks for an angle θ = 34 ∘.
