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.)
