Unformatted text preview: 9-3 workers are pulling a 400-1b crate up an incline as shown in Fig. P9-3. The coefficient of friction between the crate and the surface is 0.20, and the rope on which the workers are pulling is horizontal. {a} Determine the force F that the workers must exert to start sliding the crate up the incline. If one of the workers lets go of the rope for a moment, determine the minimum force the other workers must exert to keep the crate from sliding back down the incline. SOLUTION A free-body diagram for the block is shown at the right. (a) For impending motion of the block up the incline: + z” EFx p cos 15° - 400 sin 15° - 0.2An o n + “\ 2F?

If the coefficient of friction is 0.25 for both surfaces, determine the force F required to cause impending notion of block B. SOLUTION A free-body diagram for block A is shown at the right.

If the coefficient of friction between the box and the surface is 0550 and the angle a = 60 . determine the maximum force T for which the box will be in equilibrium. Is impending motion by tipping or by slipping? SOLUTION W mg = 30(9.807} = 294.2 N From a free-body diagram for the rectangular block when motion is impending: For sliding: A = Aftmax) = “A“ = 0.50An f + /” 2Fx 0.5mn - T cos 60° ~ 294.2 sin 20° = 0 + “\ EFY A + T sin 60° - 294.2 cos 20° = 0 Solving yields: 241.55 N 40.31 N 8 40.3 N (for sliding} For tipping: + C Sun = T sin 60° (0.91 + T cos 60° {0.6} + 294.2 sin 20° {0.31 - 294.2 cos 20° (0.45) = 0 T = 87.29 N 3 87.3 N [for tipping) Therefore: T = 40.3 N max Impending motion is by slipping ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
