Box on a Slant with a Pulley
Box on a Slant with a Pulley#
The figure shows a block of mass \(m\) resting on a 17\(^\circ\) slope. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the sloped surface is 0.1. It is connected via a massless string over a massless, frictionless pulley to a hanging block of mass 3 \(kg\).
What is the minimum value of \(m\) such that the system remains at rest?
Please enter in a numeric value in \(kg\).
