Holt Algebra 2 Fundamental Trigonometric 14-3 Identities Example 3: Physics Application At what angle will a wooden block on a concrete incline start to move if the coefficient of friction is 0.62? Set the expression for the weight component equal to the expression for the force of friction. mg sinθ = μmg cosθ Holt Algebra 2 sinθ = μcosθ Divide both sides by mg. sinθ = 0.62 cosθ Substitute 0.62 for μ. Fundamental Trigonometric 14-3 Identities Example 3 Continued Divide both sides by cos θ. tanθ = 0.62 θ = 32° Ratio identity. Evaluate inverse tangent. The wooden block will start to move when the concrete incline is raised to an angle of about 32°. Holt Algebra 2 Fundamental Trigonometric 14-3 Identities Check It Out! Example 3 Use the equation mg sinθ = μmg cosθ to determine the angle at which a waxed wood block on a wood incline with μ = 0.4 begins to slide. Set the expression for the weight component equal to the expression for the force of friction. mg sinθ = μmg cosθ Holt Algebra 2 sinθ = μcosθ Divide both sides by mg. sinθ = 0.4 cosθ Substitute 0.4 for μ.
