PROBLEM 8-39
Two blocks A and B have a weight of
10 lb and 6 lb, respectively. They are
resting on the incline for which the
coefficients of static friction are
A = 0.15 and B = 0.25 . Determine
the angle which will cause motion
of one of the blocks. What is the
friction force under each of the blocks
when this occurs? The spring has a
stiffness of k = 2lb / ft and is
originally unstreched.
SOLUTION 8-39:

moving, the spring force Fsp = 0 ,

FA = sA N A = 0.15 N A
Solving Equations (1), (2), (3), (4) and (5) yields:

## = 8.531D , FA = 1.483lb , N A = 9.889lb FB = 0.8900lb , N B = 5.934lb

Since ( FB ) max = sB N B = 0.25(5.934) = 1.483lb > FB , block B doesnt slip. Therefore the
above assumption is correct, thus:

= 8.531D ,

FA = 1.483lb ,

FB = 0.8900lb

PROBLEM 8-46

Friction: Assuming cylinder E slips at points C and D and cylinder F does not move, then:

FC = sC N C = 0.5 N C

and FD = sD N D = 0.6 N D .
Equations (1) and (2) and (3) and solving, we have:

N C = 377.31N

N D = 188.65 N

Substituting

M = 90.6 N .m

Ans

## If cylinder F is on the verge of slipping at point A, then FA = sA N A = 0.5 N A . Substitute

this value into Equations (4), (5) and (6) and solving, we have:

N A = 150.92 N

N B = 679.15 N

FB = 37.73 N

Ans

## Since ( FB ) max = sB N B = 0.5(679.15) = 339.58 N > FB , cylinder F does not move.

Therefore the above assumption is correct.

contact surfaces. Thus, FA = sA N A = 0.25 N A and FB = sB N B = 0.35 N B .
