Equilibrium Equilibrium Question Example 2 / 4 An object either at rest or moving with a constant velocity is said to be in equilibrium Since vectora = 0 , the net force is zero summationdisplay vector F = 0 (1) As always, it is better to work with components summationdisplay F x = 0 , summationdisplay F y = 0 (2) Example: Find the tension in the two wires that support the 100 N light fixture in the following diagram (see figure)

Question 3 / 4 In the previous example, if we decreased the angles of both wires make with the horizontal from 40 o to 30 o , how would that affect the magnitude of tension in both wires?

The tension in one wire would increase and the tension in the other wire would decrease Example Equilibrium Question Example 4 / 4 ■ Example: Block 1 (mass m 1 = 8 . 00 kg) is moving on a 20 . o incline. This block is connected to block 2 (mass m 2 = 20 . kg) by a massless cord that passes over a massless and frictionless pulley (see Fgure). The coe±cient of kinetic friction between block 1 and the incline is μ k = 0 . 13 . a. What is the acceleration of the blocks? b. What is the tension on the cord?...

    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.
