Equilibrium Equilibrium Question Example 2 / 4 An object either at rest or moving with a constant velocity is said to be in equilibrium Since va = 0 , the net force is zero s v F = 0 (1) As always, it is better to work with components s F x = 0 , s F y = 0 (2) Example: Find the tension in the two wires that support the 100 N light ±xture in the following diagram (see ±gure)
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 aFect the magnitude of tension in both wires? a. The tension in both wires would increase

Unformatted text preview: b. The tension in both wires would decrease c. The tension in both wires would remain the same d. 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?...
