An incline, 2 masses, and a pulley. What could be more fun? (20:28)
A 55 g mass is attached to a light string, which is placed over a frictionless, massless pulley, and attached to a 199 g block which is on a board inclined at 39.3° as shown. Assuming the block starts at rest and the μk between the incline and block is 0.38, how long will it take the block to move 13 cm?
