Problem 16
Mira and Tariq are lab partners for the Pulley and Bricks Lab. They have determined that the 2.15kg brick
is experiencing a forward tension force of 9.54 N and a friction force of 8.69 N as it is accelerated across
the table top. Construct a free body diagram depicting the types of forces acting upon the brick. Then
determine the net force and acceleration of the brick.
