A brick of mass 1.0 kg slides down a roof inclined at 30.0 degrees with respect to the horizontal. If the coefficient of friction is 0.10, how fast is it moving when it reaches the edge of the roof 2.00 m away?

Answer ( 1 )

  1. a = gsinθ – μgcosθ

    where a-acceleration

               g-gravity

               μ-coefficient of friction

    a = gsinθ – μgcosθ

    = 9.8*sin(30) – 0.1 * 9.8*cos(30)

    = 4.051 m/s^2

    Speed = sqrt(2as)

    = sqrt(2*4.051*2)

    = 4.025 m/s
