Solution

The correct option is A 1 kg On the 1 kg block, the frictional force will act down the incline plane opposite to the relative motion of the block on the surface. For blocks to move with constant velocity, net force has to be zero. Using FBD For m : T=mg, the maximum tension on the rope For 1 kg: f=μN=μ(1)gcosθ=μgcosθ T=(1)gsinθ+f=gsinθ+12gcosθ =g[35+(12)45] =g=10 N (As θ=37∘, sinθ=35,cosθ=45) Hence, T=mg = 10 N ⇒ m=1 kg.
