oldhomewk 29 – VALENCIA, DANIEL – Due: Apr 28 2008, 4:00 am 1 Question 1, chap 14, sect 1. part 1 of 1 10 points A ladder is leaning against a smooth wall. There is friction between the ladder and the floor, which may hold the ladder in place; the ladder is stable when μ 1 2 tan θ . m g L f 45 h b F N μ = 0 . 4 The ladder will be 1. stable. 2. at the critical point of slipping. 3. unstable. correct Explanation: Stability requires μ 1 2 tan 45 = 0 . 5 . Since μ = 0 . 04 < 0 . 5 , the ladder is unstable. keywords: static equilibrium, instability Question 2, chap 14, sect 3. part 1 of 3 10 points A uniform rod pivoted at one end “point O ” is free to swing in a vertical plane in a gravitational field. However, it is held in equilibrium by a force F at its other end. x y F F x F y W R x R R y θ O Force vectors are drawn to scale. What is the condition for translational equilibrium along the horizontal x direction? 1. R x F x sin θ = 0 2. F x cos θ R x sin θ = 0 3. R x + F x = 0 correct 4. F x = 0 5. R x F x cos θ = 0 Explanation: Using the distances, angles and forces de- picted in the figure, the condition summationdisplay F x = 0 for translational equilibrium in the x direction gives R x + F x = 0 . Question 3, chap 14, sect 3. part 2 of 3 10 points What is the condition for translational equilibrium along the vertical y direction? 1. R y F y + W = 0 2. R y + F y = 0 3. W R y + F y = 0 4. R y sin θ + F y sin θ W cos θ = 0 5. R y + F y W = 0 correct Explanation:

    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.
