Conveyor Friction 2#


A conveyor belt, angled at \(\theta = {{ params_theta }}^{\circ}\), carries packages up an incline. The package aboard it slips and begins moving downwards at a constant speed \(v_p = {{ params_v }} \ \rm{ft/s}\) relative to the ground. Given that friction can be found as \(F = Cv\_{PC}\), where \(C\) is a constant \({{ params_C }}\). \(v\_{PC}\) is the relative velocity of the package to the conveyor.
The package has a weight of \(W = {{ params_W }} \ \rm{lb}\).
