# Two blocks of masses $m_1=5 \;kg$ and $m_2= 6\;kg$ are connected by a light string passing over a light friction less pulley as shown in fig. The mass $m_1$ is at rest on the inclined plane and mass $m_2$ hangs vertically . If the angle of incline $\theta =30^{\circ}$, What is the magnitude and direction of the force of friction on the $5\;kg$ block . Take $g= 10 ms^{-2}$

$\begin{array}{1 1}35\;N\;up\;the\;plane\\35\;N\;down\;the\;plane\\85\;N\;up\;the\;plane\\85\;N\;down\;the\;plane\end{array}$

Answer : $35\;N\;down\;the\;plane$
Weight of mass $m_2 = 6 \times 10= 60\;N$
The weight of $m_2$ provides the tension . Thus $T= 60\;N$
Opposite this force along the plane is the component $F_1= m_1 g \sin \theta$ of the force $m_1 g$ .
