a plank of mass 2kg and length 1m is placed on horizontal floor, a small block of mass 1kg is placed o top of the plank,at its extreme end. the co efficient of friction between plank and floor is 0.5 and that between plank and block is 0.2 .if a horizontal force=30N starts acting on the plank to right,the time after which,the block will fall off the plank?

Dear akash



let at time t small block cover a distance x

and for amall block to fall plank must cover (x+1) m in time t

accelarion of small block=2/1 =2

acceleration of plank =(30-15-2)/2 =13/2

so x= 1/2 *a1 *t2   =   t2 .................1


x+1 =1/2 *a2*t2

put value of x from equation 1

 t2 +1 =1/2 *a2*t2

t=2/3 sec
