Read each Question carefully and answer all questions. No negative marking for wrong answers.
If there are numerical answers in any question write them upto two decimal places unless otherwise mentioned. If an
answer does not have an accompanying FBD, the answer would be marked wrong, if you need any clarification /
exception regarding this guideline please consult me.
Make sure you show all relevant steps, if the steps are not shown the answer is deemed wrong.

Q 8.
Q 9.
A 10 kg block is pushed horizontally against a vertical wall, with coefficient of static
friction of 0.25 between the block and the wall. With what force must the block be
pushed against the wall in order to keep the block from falling? (3)

Q 10.
In the figure shown, (a) calculate the acceleration of both the box A and B, if the
surface is frictionless. (b) Assuming the coefficient of
the friction is 0.25, calculate the acceleration of the
system. (c) Calculate the coefficient of friction if the
given system stays stationary (doesn’t move)? (9)
Q 11.
The coefficient of static friction is related to the coefficient of kinetic friction in what
way? (3)
The coefficient of static friction is always less than the coefficient of kinetic friction
They are equal
The coefficient of static friction is always greater than the coefficient of kinetic friction

happy guy who just got them as a graduation present. The front duck is 5.0 kg the
middle duck is 3.0 kg and the back duck is 2.0 kg. If the happy guy pulls them with a
force of 15 N and there is no friction, calculate
(a) the acceleration of all the ducks.
(b) the tension in the string connecting duck 1 and duck 2, and duck 2 and duck 3.
