Problem 3.5 A 2.9-lb force P is applied to the lever which controls the auger of a snowblower. Determine the value of α knowing that the moment of P about A is counterclockwise and has a magnitude of 17 lb in. Solution 5. By definition / sin A B A M r P θ = where ( 29 90 φ = + ° - and 1 4.8 in. tan 3.4 in. - = 54.689 = ° Also ( 29 ( 29 2 2 / 3.4 in. 4.8 in. B A r = + 5.8822 in. = Then ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 17 lb in. 5.8822 in. 2.9 lb sin 54.689 90 = ° + ° - or ( 29 sin 144.689 0.99658 ° - = or 144.689 85.260 ; 94.740 ° - = ° ° 49.9 , 59.4 = ° ° t
