READING QUIZ 1. A wedge allows a ______ force P to lift a _________ weight W. A) (large, large) B) (small, small) C) (small, large) D) (large, small) W 2. Considering friction forces and the indicated motion of the belt, how are belt tensions T 1 and T 2 related? A) T 1 > T 2 B) T 1 = T 2 C) T 1 < T 2 D) T 1 = T 2 e µ

APPLICATIONS Wedges are used to adjust the elevation or provide stability for heavy objects such as this large steel vessel. How can we determine the force required to pull the wedge out? When there are no applied forces on the wedge, will it stay in place (i.e., be self- locking) or will it come out on its own? Under what physical conditions will it come out?

APPLICATIONS (continued) In the design of a band brake, it is essential to analyze the frictional forces acting on the band (which acts like a belt). How can we determine the tensions in the cable pulling on the band? How are these tensions, the applied force P and the torque M, related?
