Unformatted text preview: ρ . 3. The forklift travels forward with a constant speed of 2 . 7 m/s. Determine the short-est stopping distance without causing any of the wheels to leave the ground. The forklift has a weight of 1000 kg with center of gravity at G 1 , and the load weighs 4500 N ( ≈ 450 kg) with center of gravity at G 2 . Neglect the weight of the wheels. 4. The 150-kg wheel has a radius of gyration about its center of mass O of k O = 250 mm.If it rotates counterclockwise with an angular velocity of w = 1200 rev/min and the tensile force applied to the brake band at A is T A = 2000 N, determine the tensile force T B in the band at B so that the wheel stops in 50 revolutions after T A and T B are applied. 1 Figure 1: Questions 1 and 2 Figure 2: Question 3 and 4 2...
