Unformatted text preview: 2 / 6 W T = 4. The two circular disks shown are identical. The radius of each disk is R (known) and the weight of each disk is W (also known). All surfaces are smooth, so you can neglect friction. Draw a free body diagram for each disk, and find the normal force between the top disk and the horizontal wall. Using Newtons third law, the magnitudes N3 and N4 are equal. We dont in the end need this to solve the problem (though if we had been asked for N1 or N2 we would have). Using the equilibrium condition for the top ball: 2 / 4 5 5 30 sin 4 N N N N F x = = = ( ) 3 / 3 5 3 / 5 2 / 3 / 4 30 cos 4 W N W N W N W N F y = = = = = 60 2R W N3 N2 N1 30 30 W N4 N5 30 T4 T2 W T1 FBD of the box: FBD of ring A: T3 T7 T5 FBD of ring B: T6...
