# FRICTION AND WEDGES

1. Determine the largest force P for which the 18-kg uniform bar remains in equilibrium.

0.2 =

= sin 50 176.4 +

## 0.8 sin 50 = 176.4

= sin 50 + 176.4

176.4
;0.8 (sin 50)

= 287.84

= sin 50 +
= sin 50
0.2 sin 50 = sin 50 + 176.4

2. Derive the expression for the largest angle for which the homogeneous block stays in equilibrium.
Let

cos sin = 0

cos + sin = 0
cos cos ( sin ) = 0

3. The man pushes the 60-kg homogeneous crate with the horizontal force P. Determine the largest distance h for which
the crate will slide without tipping.
