The friction forces acting on the plank may be considered to be

The impending motion we have considered thus far originated from the
tendency of the pair of contacting surfaces to slide over each other. Another
type of impending motion that is possible is the tendency of the external
forces acting on a body to overturn (that is, tip over) the body. This type
of motion arises whenever the frictional and normal reactions cannot exert
a moment that is sufﬁcient to balance the moment of the external forces.
As an example, consider the horizontal force that the person in Figure 63
must apply to the ﬁle cabinet in order to move the cabinet. If the person
exerts a sufﬁciently large force close to the ground, as in Figure 6b, the 190 PROBS. 5.47 AND 5.48 FRICTION The value of P for tipping is smaller than that required to slide the crate.
Thus, we conclude that the crate will tip and P ax = 503 newtons . A m Additional Remarks It “Q11 be noted that we solved the case of impending slipping without em
ploying the moment equilibrium equation. This is a consequence of the
coefﬁcients of static friction at skids A and B being equal. If these coefficients
were diﬁerent, we would have needed 2 F , and Z M A, to ﬁnd the individual
values of NA and NB. An interesting aside to this problem is its similarity to the problem
posed in part (c) of Example 1. It can be seen that concern about the possibility
of impending tipping, which always requires that we consider moment
equilibrium, complicates the solution of problems involving impending
motion. HOMEWORK PROBLEMS 5.47 The coefﬁcient of static friction between the 1 ton granite block and

the block and each surface it contacts is 0.5. 8. BASIC MACHINES HAVING FRICTION There are a multitude of simple mechanical devices, that we refer to as basic machines, that can be used to either move or prevent the motion of
physical objects. These devices can magnify or convert the input forces
applied to them into a different set of output forces that are applied to other
systems. For example, a wheel ﬁxed to an axle has the capability of trans
forming a torque exerted by its axle into a forward force that can propel
a vehicle. In Chapter 4, we developed the basic techniques for investigating the
equilibrium of machines. The common feature of the machines we shall
consider here is the important, and sometimes useful, effect of friction. ...
