Problem 63

A block of mass 0.50 kg rests on the inclined surface of a wedge of mass 2.0 kg, as in Figure 5-71. The wedge is acted on by a horizontal applied force and slides on a frictionless surface. (a) If the coefficient of static friction between the wedge and the block is and the wedge is inclined with the horizontal, find the maximum and minimum values of the applied force for which the block does not slip. (b) Repeat part (a) with ms _ 0.40.

THE STRANGE NEW SCIENCE OF CHAOS ● Chaos​ = errors or deviations from expected results ○ Scientists try to minimize or eliminate it ● Linear system​ = the output is directly proportional to the input ● Examples of chaotic systems ○ Water bubbling down a stream ○ Smoke rising from a cigarette ○ Water dripping from a tap ○ The weather ○ Our nervous systems ● Chaotic systems are sensitive to initial conditions = a small change in the starting condition leads to a big change in the result ● Weather is hard to predict ○ The turbulent atmosphere cannot be described by simple linear equations ● Attractor​ = a preferred state towards which a chaotic system may tend ● Turbulence​ = much of the
