Problem P. 4277. (October 2010)

P. 4277. The wedge shown in the figure can slide without friction on a horizontal tabletop. The mass of the wedge is M and its angle of elevation is \alpha=30o. A body of mass m slides down without friction along the wedge, the path of the body makes an angle of \varphi=60o with the ground. Find the ratio of the masses, m/M.
