### A mass m is supported as shown in the figure by ideal strings connected to a rigid wall and to a mass 3m at rest on a fixed horizontal surface. The string connected to larger mass is horizontal, that connected to smaller mass is vertical and the one connected to wall makes an angle 60° with horizontal. Then the minimum coefficient of static friction between the larger mass and the horizontal surface that permits the system to remain in equilibrium in the situation shown is given by Find the value of n.

QUESTION: 5

A block of mass 1 kg is placed on a rough horizontal surface. A spring is attached to the block whose other end is joined to a rigid wall, as shown in the figure. A horizontal force is applied on the block so that it remains at rest while the spring is elongated by x Let Fmax and Fmin be the maximum and minimum value of force F for which the block remains in equilibrium.
For a particular xFmax –  Fmin = 2N.  Also shown is the variation of Fmax + Fmin versus x, the elongation of the spring. The coefficient of friction between the block and the horizontal surface is :

QUESTION: 6

The rear side of a truck is open and a box of 40kg mass is placed 5m away from the open and as shown. The coefficient of friction between the box and the surface below it is 0.15. On a straight road, the truck starts from rest and accelerates with 2ms–2. At what distance (in m.) from the starting point does the box fall off the truck (i.e. distance traveled by the truck)? [Ignore the size of the box] Solution:

In the reference frame of the truck FBD of 40 kg block Net force = ma – µN This acceleration of the block in reference frame of truck so time taken by box to fall down from truck So distance moved by the truck *Answer can only contain numeric values
QUESTION: 7

A block of mass m is placed on top of a block of mass 2m which in turn is placed on fixed horizontal surface. The coefficient of friction between all surfaces is µ = 1. A massless string is connected to each mass and wraps halfway around a massless and frictionless pulley, as shown in the figure. The  pulley is pulled by horizontal force of magnitude F = 6mg towards right as shown. If the magnitude of acceleration of pulley is x/2 m/s2.  Fill the value of x.  (Take g = 10 m/s2) Solution:

The F.B.D. of both blocks is as shown.  Hence,   x = 25

QUESTION: 8

A block of mass 5kg is placed on a rough horizontal surface of a moving compartment. It is seen by an observer sitting inside the compartment, that a force of 10N is required in horizontal direction to move the box in a direction parallel to the motion of compartment. While a force of 20N is required in horizontal direction to move the box in opposite direction. If coefficient of friction between  the block and the surface is x/10 then find out value of x.

Solution:

As seen from an inside observer, the forces acting on the block are pseudo force, frictional force and the applied force.
When the applied force is in the direction of pseudo force (in this case force will be required to move the block)

10 + pseudo force = µmg     ...(1)

When the applied force is opposite to the pseudo force,
20 – pseudo force = µ·m·g     ...(2)
30 = 2µmg = 2·µ·50
∴   µ = 0.3
⇒   x = 3
