Question

The crate has a mass of $80 \mathrm{~kg}$ and is being towed by a chain which is always directed at $20^{\circ}$ from the horizontal. If the magnitude of $\mathbf{P}$ is increased until the crate begins to slide, determine the crate's initial acceleration if the coefficient of static friction is $\mu_s=0.5$ and the coefficient of kinetic friction is $\mu_k=0.3$.

Solution

VerifiedStep 1
