The ladder shown below is 8 m long and has a mass of 20 kg. The man on the ladder has a mass of 90 kg. Assume the
static coefficient of friction between the ladder and floor is 0.6 and that the contact between the ladder and wal
The block shown below rests on an inclined plane and is loaded as shown. Ignore gravity/weight in this problem.
What is the maximum force, P, that can be applied before the block starts to slide?
Two bars, each of mass m and length l are pinned at A as shown. The system will be stable for certain combinations of
angle, , and friction coefficient, .
Your answer to this problem should be in symbolic form, i.e. an expressio
Consider the system shown below. The shaft is supported by a thrust bearing at A and a journal bearing at B. The cable
