## Problem 342 | Equilibrium of Parallel Force System

**Problem 342**

The wheel loads on a jeep are given in Fig. P-342. Determine the distance x so that the reaction of the beam at A is twice as great as the reaction at B.

**Problem 342**

The wheel loads on a jeep are given in Fig. P-342. Determine the distance x so that the reaction of the beam at A is twice as great as the reaction at B.

**Problem 325**

Determine the amount and direction of the smallest force P required to start the wheel in Fig. P-325 over the block. What is the reaction at the block?

**Problem 324**

A wheel of 10-in radius carries a load of 1000 lb, as shown in Fig. P-324. (a) Determine the horizontal force P applied at the center which is necessary to start the wheel over a 5-in. block. Also find the reaction at the block. (b) If the force P may be inclined at any angle with the horizontal, determine the minimum value of P to start the wheel over the block; the angle P makes with the horizontal; and the reaction at the block.
