Unformatted text preview: Note that the crate rests against a small bar attached to the truck bed and thus tipping does not rely on friction. 6 ft 2 ft 3. The thin plate that is 0.6m tall and 0.3m wide has a mass of 10 kg. The plate is supported in static equilibrium by two equal length (and parallel) massless links AB and CD and a cord EF. What is the acceleration of the center of mass of the plate and the tension in the links AB and CD immediately after the cord at EF is cut? Note that the angular velocity of the links AB and CD will be zero immediately after the cord is cut, but the angular acceleration will not be zero.
