A wheel is being rolled along the floor by a force T, acting at an angle with respect to the floor when it encounters an obstacle of height h as shown in the figure. The weight of the wheel W; neglect the weight of the rod. a. Draw a free body diagram for the wheel. Pay particular attention to the direction of the reaction at the point A. b. Determine the reactions at the point of contact with the floor and the block. c. What is the force T necessary to start the roller over the obstacle at A. T r
2. During an engine test on the ground, a propeller thrust T is generated on the airplane with a weight W acting at the center of mass G. The main wheels at B are locked and do not skid; the small tail wheel at A has no brake. a. Draw a free-body-diagram of the airplane, indicating the reactions at the wheels. b. Determine the reactions at both wheels c. Find the thrust T at which the rear wheel will lift off the ground. T
