The blocks shown in Fig. P-522 are separated by a solid strut which is attached to the blocks with frictionless pins. If the coefficient of friction for all surfaces is 0.20, determine the value of horizontal force P to cause motion to impend to the right. Assume that the strut is a uniform rod weighing 300 lb.
In Fig. P-519, two blocks are connected by a solid strut attached to each block with frictionless pins. If the coefficient of friction under each block is 0.25 and B weighs 2700 N, find the minimum weight of A to prevent motion.
Referring to Fig. P-515 if the coefficient of friction is 0.60 and θ = 30°, what force P applied to B acting down and parallel to the incline will start motion? What is the tension in the cord attached to A?
Block A in Fig. P-515 weighs 120 lb, block B weighs 200 lb, and the cord is parallel to the incline. If the coefficient of friction for all surfaces in contact is 0.25, determine the angle θ of the incline of which motion of B impends.
The 10-kN cylinder shown in Fig. P-514 is held at rest on the 30° incline by a weight P suspended from a cord wrapped around the cylinder. If slipping impends, determine P and the coefficient of friction.
