Unformatted text preview: The propelling action is obtained by drawing the pulley attached to rod BC rapidly to the left by means of a piston P . If the piston applies constant force F to rod BC such that it moves it a distance d , determine the speed attained by the slider if it was originally at rest. Neglect the mass of the pulleys, cable, piston, and rod BC . Units Used: kN 10 3 N = Given: M 10 kg = F 20 kN = d 0.2 m = Solution: F d + 1 2 M v 2 = v 2 F d M = v 28.284 m s = 260...
