01 - Highest point of projectile as measured from inclined plane

Problem 01
A projectile is fired up the inclined plane at an initial velocity of 15 m/s. The plane is making an angle of 30° from the horizontal. If the projectile was fired at 30° from the incline, compute the maximum height z measured perpendicular to the incline that is reached by the projectile. Neglect air resistance.

Problem 507 | Friction

Problem 507
The 2225-N block shown in Fig. P-507 is in contact with 45° incline. The coefficient of static friction is 0.25. Compute the value of the horizontal force P necessary to (a) just start the block up the incline or (b) just prevent motion down the incline. (c) If P = 1780 N, what is the amount and direction of the friction force?

Required Force to Hold the Box in a Smooth Plane - Equilibrium of Force System

Problem 310
A 300-lb box is held at rest on a smooth plane by a force P inclined at an angle θ with the plane as shown in Fig. P-310. If θ = 45°, determine the value of P and the normal pressure N exerted by the plane.
