Then, the distance of the motor from the end where the 600-N force is applied is m 75 . ) N 800 ( ) N 300 )( m 00 . 2 ( = .The center of gravity is located at m 80 . ) N 1000 ( ) m 75 . )( N 800 ( ) m . 1 )( N 200 ( = + from the end where the N 600 force is applied. 11.9: The torque due to , cot is h θ h T T D Lw x x- =- and the torque due to Lw D T T y y = is . The sum of these torques is ). cot 1 ( θ Lw D h- From Figure (11.9(b)), , tan θ D h = so the net torque due to the tension in the tendon is zero. 11.10: a) Since the wall is frictionless, the only vertical forces are the weights of the man and the ladder, and the normal force. For the vertical forces to balance, N, 900 N 740 N 160 m 1 2 = + = + = w w n and the maximum frictional forces is N 360 ) N 900 )( 40 .
