Question

At a mail sorting facility, packages slide down a ramp but are stopped part way down the ramp so that they can be scanned. While the packages are scanned, they are held in place by a horizontal force from a spring‑loaded arm. Calculate the minimum force that must be applied by this arm to hold a package on the ramp. The ramp is at an angle of ?=31.5∘θ=31.5∘ with the horizontal. The package has a mass of 9.25 kg.9.25 kg. The coefficient of static friction between the ramp and the package is 0.405.

Answer #1

**Answer:- 15.1 N**

**Solution:**

The force pulling the package down the ramp is the component of the weight in the direction of the ramp: Fw = m*g*sinθ

The component of the spring force in the direction of the ramp is Fs = Fa*cosθ.

Before the package starts to move, this force will be aided by the frictional force, which is Fr = µ*Fn, where Fn is the net normal force of the package against the ramp:

Fn = m*g*cosθ + Fa*sinθ

then, Fr = µ*(m*g*cosθ + Fa*sinθ)

For the package to slide, the weight must at least equal the applied force component and overcome the friction force

m*g*sinθ = Fa*cosθ + µ*(m*g*cosθ + Fa*sinθ)

Fa*(cosθ + µ*sinθ) = m*g*(sinθ - µ*cosθ)

Fa = m*g*(sinθ - µ*cosθ)/(cosθ + µ*sinθ)

Using the known values,

Fa = 9.25 * 9.8 * (Sin 31.5 - 0.405*Cos 31.5)/(Cos 31.5 + 0.405*Sin 31.5)

Fa = 90.74 * (0.177)/(1.064)

Fa = 15.10 Newton

At a mail sorting facility, a spring is used to launch packages
up an inclined plane 3.0 m long inclined at 18°. The coefficient of
friction between the package and the plane is 0.25. Packages under
1.0 kg make it to the top of the incline and qualify for the lowest
postage rate. Heavier packages must be removed from the ramp, and
are subject to greater postage

Tow movers unload a piano of mass 200. kg from a truck by using
a ramp that is inclined at 35 degree above the horizontal. The
coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the piano and
the ramp are 0.40 and 0.35. respectively. One mover's cell phone

the call. What magnitude horizontal force must the second mover
apply to keep the piano stationary? Fatigued after a...
