Block on a Ramp#

A mass of 48 \(kg\) sits at rest on an incline making an angle of 38 \(^\circ\) with respect to the horizontal.

a block sits on a ramp that makes angle theta with the horizontal

Part 1#

If \(\mu_s\) = 0.5, what is the friction force on the block? Choose the best answer.

Answer Section#

  • 290.0 \(N\), up the incline

  • 370.0 \(N\), up the incline

  • 140.0 \(N\), down the incline

  • 190.0 \(N\), down the incline

  • 290.0 \(N\), down the incline
