A force vector F is applied at the other end, at an angle to the rod. L m F If vector F were to be applied perpendicular to the rod, at what distance d from the axis of rotation should it be applied in order to produce the same torque vector ? 1. d = L 2. d = L tan 3. d = 2 L 4. d = L sin correct 5. d = L cos Explanation: The torque the force generates is = F L sin . Thus the distance in question should be L sin . Question 2, chap 13, sect 1. part 1 of 4 10 points A 1800 kg block is lifted at a constant speed of 4 cm / s by a steel cable that passes over a massless pulley to a motor-driven winch. The radius of the winch drum is 25 cm and the winch drum has a mass of 1100 kg. The acceleration due to gravity is 9 . 81 m / s 2 . 1800 kg 2 5 c m 4cm / s 1100 kg What force must be exerted by the cable? Correct answer: 17 . 658 kN (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : m = 1800 kg , v = 4 cm / s = 0 . 04 m / s , and r = 25 cm = 0 . 25 m . Note: There is no acceleration in this sys- tem and the mass of the winch drum is not required. Because the block is lifted at constant speed, the cable tension is T = mg = (1800 kg) (9 . 81 m / s 2 ) kN N = 17 . 658 kN . Question 3, chap 13, sect 1. part 2 of 4 10 points What torque does the cable exert on the winch drum? Correct answer: 4 . 4145 kN m (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: The torque is = T r = (17 . 658 kN) (0 . 25 m) = 4 . 4145 kN m ....
