The arm is rotating counterclockwise at a constant rate of a) = 8 rad /sec about point 0 within a horizontal plane. A constant force F A = 150 newtons acts on particle A in the outward radial direction. The radial distance from O to A is given by the distance r shown in the figure. Find: For this problem, do the following. a) Complete the free body diagram (FBD) of A above. Show the polar unit vectors e, and ea in your FBD.

The right side of the tank is ﬁlled with water ( pW = 1000 kg/m3) and the left side is ﬁlled with methanol (pM = 789 kg/m3) in such a way that the ﬂuid height, H, in each tank is the same and increases at a rate 1¥= 0.1 m/minute. A moment M is applied to the gate to prevent mixing of the two ﬂuids. gate Methanol Water —.._> 4— Find: Determine the moment M needed to prevent mixing of the ﬂuids at 5 minutes after the start of the ﬁlling of empty tanks.

Instructor Part c) — 5 points In many cowboy ﬁlms, one often sees the cowboy get off his horse and wrap a rope around a horizontal hitching rack to keep the horse from wandering away. For the purposes of this problem, assume that the cowboy wraps the rope 3+ times around the hitching rack and then lets the free end of the rope hang down. What is the maximum force that the horse can pull on the rope does not slip? Assume that the free end of the rope has a weight of 0.3 lbs., 0 = 45° and ,uS = 0.4, where ,uS is the coefﬁcient of static friction between the rope and the hitching rack. Do you think this force is enough to prevent the horse from wandering away? To Horse / hitching rack \ free end of rope ME 270 - Fall 2004 Name Final Exam PROBLEM N0. 5 (cont.)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
