Engineering Mechanics - Dynamics Chapter 15 Problem 15-106 The block of weight W is originally at rest on the smooth surface. It is acted upon by a radial force F R and a horizontal force F H , always directed at θ from the tangent to the path as shown. Determine the time required to break the cord, which requires a tension T . What is the speed of the block when this occurs? Neglect the size of the block for the calculation. Given: W 10 lb = 30 deg = F R 2lb = T 30 lb = F H 7lb = r 4f t = v 1 0 ft s = g 32.2 ft s 2 = Solution: Guesses t 1s = v 2 1 ft s = Given W g v 1 rF H cos () rt + W g v 2 r = F R F
