PROBLEM 3.2 The force P is applied to the lever which controls the auger of a snowblower. Determine the magnitude and the direction of the smallest force P which has a 2.20- N m counterclockwise moment about A . SOLUTION For P to be a minimum, it must be perpendicular to the line joining points A and B .

PROBLEM 3.6 It is known that a vertical force of 800 N is required to remove the nail at C from the board. As the nail first starts moving, determine ( a ) the moment about B of the force exerted on the nail, ( b ) the magnitude of the force P which creates the same moment about B if α = 10°, ( c ) the smallest force P which creates the same moment about B . SOLUTION ( a ) Have / = B CB N M rF ( )( ) 0.1 m 800 N = 80.0 N m = or 80.0 N m B =⋅ M W ( b ) By definition / sin θ = BA B Mr P where ( ) 90 90 70 = °− ° − 90 20 10 = ° 60 = ° ( ) 80.0 N m 0.45 m sin 60 P ⋅= ° 205.28 N = P or 205 N P = W ( c ) For P to be minimum, it must be perpendicular to the line joining points A and B . Thus, P must be directed as shown.
