Chapter 11, Problem 11.73P

The Farmyard Gate. A gate 4.00 m wide and 2.00 m high weighs 700 N. Its center of gravity is at its center, and it is hinged at A and B. To relieve the strain on the top hinge, a wire CD is connected as shown in Fig. P11.73. The tension in CD is increased until the horizontal force at hinge A is zero. What is (a) the tension in the wire CD; (b) the magnitude of the horizontal component of the force at hinge B; (c) the combined vertical force exerted by hinges A and B?

A hungry bear weighing 700 N walks out on a beam in an attempt to retrieve a basket of goodies hanging at the end of the beam (Fig. P12.29). The beam is uniform, weighs 200 N, and is 6.00 m long, and it is supported by a wire at an angle of θ = 60.0°. The basket weighs 80.0 N. (a) Draw a force diagram for the beam. (b) When the bear is at x = 1.00 m, find the tension in the wire supporting the beam and the components of the force exerted by the wall on the left end of the beam. (c) What If? If the wire can withstand a maximum tension of 900 N, what is the maximum distance the bear can walk before the wire breaks?
How much compressive stress is present on the L1, L2 vertebral disc of a 625 N woman, given that approximately 45% of body weight is supported by the disc when she stands erect holding a 222 N suitcase? (Assume that the disc is oriented horizontally and that its surface area is 20 cm2.)

  • Figure P12.38 shows a light truss formed from three struts lying in a plane and joined by three smooth hinge pins at their ends. The truss supports a downward force of F=1000N applied at the point B. The truss has negligible weight. The piers at A and C are smooth. (a) Given 1 = 30.0 and 2 = 45.0, find nA and nC. (b) One can show that the force any strut exerts on a pin must be directed along the length of the strut as a force of tension or compression. Use that fact to identify the directions of the forces that the struts exert on the pins joining them. Find the force of tension or of compression in each of the three bars. Figure P12.38
    In Example 14.3, we found that one of the steel cables supporting an airplane at the Udvar-Hazy Center was under a tension of 9.30 103 N. Assume the cable has a diameter of 2.30 era and an initial length of 8.00 m before the plane is suspended on the cable. How much longer is the cable when the plane is suspended on it?
    A stepladder of negligible weight is constructed as shown in Figure P10.73, with AC = BC = = 4.00 m. A painter of mass m = 70.0 kg stands on the ladder d = 3.00 m from the bottom. Assuming the floor is frictionless, find (a) the tension in the horizontal bar DE connecting the two halves of the ladder, (b) the normal forces at A and B, and (c) the components of the reaction force at the single hinge C that the left half of the ladder exerts on the right half. Suggestion: Treat the ladder as a single object, but also treat each half of the ladder separately.
