A 30.0 kg block is resting on a flat horizontal table. On topof this block is resting a 15.0 kg block, to which a horizontal spring is attached. The spring constant of the spring is 325 N/m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the lower block and the table is 0.600, and the coefficient of static friction between the two blocks is 0.900. A horizontal force is applied to the lower block. This force is increasing in such a way as to keep the blocks moving at a constant speed. At the point where the upper block begins to slip on the lower block,determine (a) the amount by which the spring is compressed and (b) the magnitude of the force F.

At the point where the upper block begins to slip, the spring force is equal to (actually, slightly greater than) the frictional force
image
Just before this time, the forces acting on each block give rise to an acceleration, which is the same for both blocks
Fμ(m+M)g=Ma
μmgkx=ma
Solving each of these equations for a and equating
a=μsgkxm=FMm+MMμkg
Substitute the value for x from above, then solve thisequation for F

A radar station, located at the origin of xz plane, as shown in the figure , detects an airplane coming straight at the station from the east. At first observation (point A), the position of the airplane relative to the origin is RA. The position vector RA has a magnitude of 360m and is located at exactly 40 above the horizon. The airplane is tracked for another 123} in the vertical east-west plane for 5.0s, until it has passed directly over the station and reached point B. The position of point B relative to the origin is RB (the magnitude of RB is 880m). The contact points are shown in the diagram, where the x axis represents the ground and the positive z direction is upward.

Define the displacement of the airplane while the radar was tracking it: RBA=RBRA. What are the components of RBA
Express RBA in meters as an ordered pair, separating the x and z components with a comma, to two significant figures.

A coin with a diameter of 2.40cm is dropped on edge on to a horizontal surface. The coin starts out with an initial angular speed of 18.0 rad/s and rolls in a straight line without slipping. If the rotation slows with an angular acceleration of magnitude 1.90 rad/s, how far does the coin roll before coming to rest?
