Blocks A and B of masses m1 and m2 are rest on the fixed wedge. The coefficient of friction between the wedge and the block is μ = 0.5 . If there is no motion then

Q: Blocks A and B of masses m1 and m2 are rest on the fixed wedge. The coefficient of friction between the wedge and the block is μ = 0.5 . If there is no motion then

Numerical

(a) $ \frac{2 – \sqrt{3}}{1 + 2 \sqrt{3}} \le \frac{m_1}{m_2} \le \frac{2 + \sqrt{3}}{2 \sqrt{3}-1} $

(b) $ \frac{\sqrt{3}-1}{1 + 2 \sqrt{3}} \le \frac{m_1}{m_2} \le \frac{2 + \sqrt{3}}{2 \sqrt{3}-1} $

(c) $ \frac{m_1}{m_2} \le \sqrt{3} $

(d) $ \frac{m_1}{m_2} \ge \sqrt{3} $
