. Two masses A and B of 10 Kg and 5 Kg respectively

are connected with a string passing over a frictionless pulley at a corner of a table a shown in the adjoining diagram. The coefficient of friction of A with the table is 0.2. The minimum mass of C that may be placed on A to prevent it from moving is equal to?



Best Answer


The tension working at mass B is 

T=mBg  [Where mB is the mass of B. g is the acceleration]



The tension worked in the blocks of A,C

T=u(mA+mC)g   [Where mA is the mass of A.mC is the mass of C  ,g is the acceleration, is the frictional constant]





Final Answer:

The mass of the block C is 15kg.
