Problem 48E

Here the stone is sliding down a friction-free incline. (a) Identify the forces that act on it, and draw appropriate force vectors. (b) By the parallelogram rule, construct the resultant force on the stone (carefully showing that it has a direction parallel to the incline—the same direction as the stones acceleration).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 48E Introduction We have to identify the force acting on the stone, and then we have to calculate the resultant force using the parallelogram law. Solution Step 1: (a) There are two force acting on the stone. One force is the gravitational attraction on the stone by earth, i.e. the weight of the stone. Which will act vertically downward. The other force that is acting on the stone is the normal reaction of the surface on the stone. This force will act in the perpendicular direction to the stone. The forces are shown in the figure below. W represents weight of the stone and R represents the normal reaction.
