Body on slope with friction
October 6th, 2022
Please help with the following problem. Provide step by step calculations for each problem.
You have a mass of 59 kg and are on a 28-degree slope hanging on to a cord with a breaking strength of 224 newtons. What must be the coefficient of static friction to 2 decimal places between you and the surface for you to be saved from the fire?
If the coefficient of static friction is zero, to the nearest tenth of a degree, what would the incline angle have to be in order for the cord not to break?
