Question: consider what happens once the restraint is removed 1 assume...

Question details

Consider what happens once the restraint is removed.

1. Assume the blocks do not move once the restraint is gone (there is static friction between block 3 and the incline). What is the value of the tension, , in the rope?

2.Under what conditions will block 3 begin to move along the incline?

3. Without knowing any numerical values, can you say definitively if block 3 would have impending motion up or down the incline?

4. Assume the blocks move (there is kinetic friction between block 3 and the incline). Does the magnitude of the acceleration of block 2 increase or decrease as it moves vertically?

5.Assume the blocks move. Does the magnitude of the acceleration of block 3 increase or decrease as it moves along the incline?

6.Assume the blocks move. If , will block 2 rise or fall?

7.Assume the blocks move. If , will block 2 rise or fall?

8.Assume the blocks move. If , will block 2 rise or fall?

9.Comparing the value of the tension in the rope under static friction to that under kinetic friction, is the value of the tension under kinetic friction greater than or less than the value of the tension under static friction?
