Unformatted text preview: g. Hint: Since block B cannot move in the y-direction, there will not be a friction force at contact e. Assume that motion is not impending for block B. (b) (2 marks) For part A above, prove that motion is not impendin g for block B. (c) (1 mark) If an additional force Q is now applied in the direction shown, what will happen to block A and why? Assume that the force P which was calculated to cause impending slipping in (a) part is still applied. Answer in words - no calculations required. 6. A bent steel bar ABC of negligible weight is supported by two cables BE and CD and by a frictionless ball and socket joint A. It is loaded by force P = 5 k...
