Objects with masses m1 = 12.0 kg and
m2 = 8.0 kg are connected by a light string
that passes over a frictionless pulley as in the figure below. If,
when the system starts from rest, m2 falls 1.00
m in 1.48 s, determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between
m1 and the table.
Express the friction force in terms of the coefficient of kinetic friction. Obtain an expression for the acceleration in terms of the masses and the net force, including friction, and solve for the coefficient of kinetic friction.
An illustration shows a rectangular block of mass m1 on the horizontal surface of a table. This is connected to another rectangular block of mass m2 by a cord that runs over a pulley placed diagonally at the corner of the horizontal surface of the table. The rectangular block of mass m2 is suspended vertically by the side of the tabletop.
