Q. 29

Block A of weight 100 N rests on a frictionless inclined plane of slope angle 30° (Fig. 5.7). A flexible cord attached to A passes over a frictionless pulley and is connected to block B of weight W. Find the weight W for which the system is in equilibrium.

Answer :

For system to be in equilibrium, the forces should balance out.

For block B, the equation is:


For block A the equation is:


Substituting value of F from

So the weight of the block should be 50N.
