impending motion

Problem 508 | Friction

Problem 508
The 200-lb block shown in Fig. P-508 has impending motion up the plane caused by the horizontal force of 400 lb. Determine the coefficient of static friction between the contact surfaces.

Problem 507 | Friction

Problem 507
The 2225-N block shown in Fig. P-507 is in contact with 45° incline. The coefficient of static friction is 0.25. Compute the value of the horizontal force P necessary to (a) just start the block up the incline or (b) just prevent motion down the incline. (c) If P = 1780 N, what is the amount and direction of the friction force?

Problem 506 | Friction

Problem 506
A 400 lb block is resting on a rough horizontal surface for which the coefficient of friction is 0.40. Determine the force P required to cause motion to impend if applied to the block (a) horizontally or (b) downward at 30° with the horizontal. (c) What minimum force is required to start motion?
