On question 6.44, the problem states that a
bag is dropped on a conveyor belt moving at a
constant velocity. I am confused about how to
determine the acceleration and/or force
imparted on the bag."
"Can you explain how to do problem 6.28 from
MasteringPhysics? "A 1400 kg steel beam is
supported by two ropes." rope 1 is 20° left of
vertical, rope 2 is 30° right of vertical. What is
the tension in ropes 1 and 2?"
A box on a rough surface is
pulled by a horizontal rope
with tension T. The box is
not moving. In this situation:
A. fs > T.
B. fs = T.
C. fs < T.
D. fs = smg.
E. fs = 0.

A box has a weight of 100 N.
It sits on the floor. It is then
pulled by a 30 N horizontal
force.
Does the box move?
A. Yes
B. No
C. Not enough information to say.

Friction depends on normal force
Static friction: fs≤μsFnormal, opposes cause
Kinetic friction: fk=μkFnormal, opposes velocity

In case a the weight of the hanging block is 10 N, in case b the
tension force is 10 N. Compare the accelerations of the two
systems. (the big block is the same in both cases) The
acceleration is:
1. The same
2. Greater on the left
3. Greater on the
right
4. I have no idea
