A Numerical for Practice

Akshay posted a numerical:
1. A disk of mass m=50g slides with zero initial velocity down an incline plane set at an angle 30 degrees to the horizontal. Having traversed the distance of 50 cm along the horizontal plane, the disc stops. Find the work performed by friction forces over the whole distance. Assume friction coefficient is 0.15 for both horizontal and incline planes.
Answer:- (-0.05J)

Numerical Problem from Friction

“The friction coefficient between a road and the tyre of a vehicle is 4/3.find the maximum incline the road may have so that once hard brakes are applied and the wheel starts skidding,the vehicle going down at a speed of 10m/s is stopped within 5m” Raju Rabha asked
