Statement of a problem № 10114


A baggage conveyor is used to unload luggage from an airplane. The 10-kg duffel bag A is sitting on top of the 20-kg suitcase B. The conveyor is moving the bags down at a constant speed of 0.5 m/s when the belt suddenly stops. Knowing that the coefficient of friction between the belt and B is 0.3 and that bag A does not slip on suitcase B, determine the smallest allowable coefficient of static friction between the bags.
