1. As m would slip in vertically downward direction, then mg = !N
" mg = !N
# N =

100 mg
$
!
= 200 Newton
Same normal force would accelerate M, thus a
M
=

200
= 4 m/s
2
Taking (m + M) as system
F = (m + M). 4 = 240 N
2. Limiting friction between A & B = 90 N
Limiting friction between B & C = 80 N
Limiting friction between C & ground = 60 N
Since limiting friction is least between C and ground, slipping will occur at first between C and ground. This
will occur when F = 60 N.

9.*_ Suppose blocks A and B move together. Applying NLM on C, A + B, and D
60 T = 6a
T 18 T' = 9a
T' 10 = 1a
Solving a = 2 m/s
2
To check slipping between A and B, we have to find friction force in this case. If it is less than limiting
static friction, then there will be no slipping between A and B.
Applying NLM on A.
T f = 6(2)
as T = 48 N
f = 36 N
and f
s
= 42 N hence A and B move together.

10. If acceleration in bar is zero. Then the body (1) will slip on bar rightward and the body (2) moves downward.
To prevent slipping, net force on each body should be zero in the frame of bar (non-inertial reference frame)

when block B is pulled two cases are possible
(1) A & C remains stationary only B tends to move downwards.
(2) B & C both moves together and there is just slipping and A & B contact and C and

Taking case (2) Let B & C moves together and there is just slipping between
A & B and between wedge and C
# P + 40 g sin 37 + 50 g sin 37 72 480 = 0
