Unformatted text preview: Name (Print) ioldns‘a la (Last \jlgirst) ME 270 - Fall 2005 Exam 2 October 27, 2005 Circle your instructor’s name/lecture time: Jones Nauman Murphy Li MWF- 9:30 MWF- 11:30 TR - 12:00 MWF- 2:30 Please review the following statement: I certify that I have not given unauthorized aid nor have I received unauthorized aid in the completion of this exam. Signature: INSTRUCTIONS Begin each problem in the space provided on the examination sheets. If additional space is required, use the yellow paper provided to you. Work on one side of each sheet only, with only one problem on a sheet. Each problem is worth 20 points and may be broken into multiple parts to provide you with ample opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge. Please remember that for you to obtain maximum credit for a problem, it must be clearly presented. i.e. o the coordinate system must be clearly identified. 0 where appropriate, free body diagrams must be drawn. These should be drawn separately from the given figures. 0 units must be clearly stated as part of the answer. 0 you must carefully delineate vector and scalar quantities. If the solution does not follow a logical thought process, it will be assumed in error. When handing in the test, please make sure that all sheets are in the correct sequential order and make sure that your name is at the top of every page that you wish to have graded.

The coefficient of static friction between the wedge and the wall is (15: 0.20. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the floor is (15: 0.30. Frictionless rollers are located between the wedge and Block B. a. Denote the coordinate system and draw the free—body diagrams for the wedge and the block using the figures provided. (7 points). b. Determine the forces between Block B and the floor. Show your work. (3 points). c. Determine the force, P, that will begin to move the block to the right. Show your work. (8 points). d. If the rollers are removed (allowing friction between the wedge and the Block) what will happen to the value for P (circle the correct answer here)?
