**Unformatted text preview: **you only need to solve for the tension in the string . (30 points) Problem 2. With your solution for the tension in the string from Problem 1, determine the vector amount of this force that is along the line AD and the vector amount that is perpendicular to the line AD . (10 points) EM 306 – Statics TEST 3 Fall 2018 - Landis Problem 3. Gravity acts downward. The coefficients of friction between the blocks, and between the lower block and the ground are both μ = 0.2 . Determine the value for the force P when the blocks begin to move. Note that the side support for the 50 lb block will only act on one side or the other, not both. (20 points)...
