Solutions to Irodov Problem 1.81 and 1.82

The body mpushes the body Mbackwards. As the bodyM is pushed backwards,m is forced to slide down the incline on M. Let the tension in the string be T and let the normal reaction between the surfaces be N. Further let the acceleration of body M be and let the acceleration of body m with … Continue reading Solutions to Irodov Problem 1.81 and 1.82
