Question 9:
The three blocks have weights of WA=60 kg, WB=15 kg and WC=50 kg. Determine the smallest
horizontal force P that must be applied to block C in order to move this block. The coefficient of
static friction between the blocks is 0.3 and between the floor and each block is 0.5.

Question 10:
Locate the centroid  x , y  of the beam’s cross-sectional area as shown in Figure 10, and then
determine the second moment of area with respect to the centroidal x ' and y ' axes.
