7.47 The four-wheel drive vehicle of weight W attempts to climb a vertical obstruction at A. The center of gravity of the vehicle is at G, and the coefficient of static friction is μs at A and B. Find the smallest μs necessary to initiate the climb. (Hint: Slipping must impend at A and B simultaneously.

Step 1

To determine: The smallest value of µ_{S} that is necessary to initiate to climb.

Step 2

Explanation

Given information:

The center of gravity of the vehicle is a G.

The coefficient of static friction is µ_{S }at A and B.

Step 3

Calculation:

By assuming the impeding slipping.

The ...
