Unformatted text preview: deflects. 2. Equations (3.9) and (3.10) can be used to model the impact. Solution: See Mathcad file P0306. 1. The weight of the trailer (the "striking member") is W trailer M trailer g . W trailer 19.613 kN = 2. The correction factor, from equation (3-15), is 1 1 M tractor 3 M trailer . 0.857 = 3. Eliminating E from equations (3.9a) and (3.10) and solving for the horizontal force on the ball F i yields 1 2 F i . i . 1 2 M trailer . v i 2 . . F i M trailer . v i 2 . i F i 55.1 kN = P 0306.mcd...
