Question

A 1 m plank with a mass of 1.1 kg is held up by a fulcrum which is .4 m from one end. It has amass of 4.4 kg on the shorter end.What is the mass on the longer end? balance the torque through the fulcrum? What are all of the forces on the plank? What are the torques on the plank?

Answer #1

A 3.6-meter long horizontal plank is held up by two supports.
One support is at the left end, and the other is 0.80 m from the
right end. The plank has uniform density and has a mass of 40 kg.
How close can a 70 kg person stand to the unsupported end before
causing the plank to rotate?

(Show all steps please) there is no mass for the box
Equilibrium: A plank, 40 m long rests on two pylons positioned
at each end. The plank is inclined at 10 degrees with the left side
higher than the right side. The plank is 40 kg. A box rests at a
point 5 m from the left side.
A) Draw a free body diagram of the system.
B) Write down an expression for calculating the torque that
includes force, the...

An 20 kg plank leans on a rough floor, against
a frictionless wall, making an angle of 40 degrees
with the horizontal. An 7 kg mass hangs down at a
distance of 7 meters from the top end of the
plank. Determine all the forces (direction and magnitude) acting on
the plank, assuming the plank is in both rotational and also
translational (linear) equilibrium, then determine the implied
value of the coefficient of static friction of the floor against
the...

A uniform beam, 2.00 m long with a mass of 20.0 kg, is mounted
to a wall with a hinge. The beam is held out horizontally by a
steel cable, 5 mm in diameter, that makes a 30-degree angle with
the beam. The beam will hold up a sign that will hang off its end.
See the diagram below
A.Using a safety factor of 5, what is the maximum tension the
steel cable can provide?
B.Given the free-body diagram as...

A strut of length L= 3.00 m and mass
m = 18.1 kg is held by a cable at an angle of
θ = 28.0°
.
(a) Sketch a force diagram, indicating all the forces and their
placement on the strut. (Submit a file with a maximum size of 1
MB.)
(b) Why is the hinge a good place to use for calculating
torques?
(c) Write the condition for rotational equilibrium symbolically,
calculating the torques around the hinge. (Submit a...

A 55-kg diver stands at the end of a
diving board located 10 m above the water level. The diving board
is held down at one end by an anchor bolt. The fulcrum is located
at 1.4 m from the bolt and the total length of the board is 3.9
m.
Draw a free body diagram showing the forces acting on the
diver.
Calculate the torque that she exerts on the board with respect
to the fulcrum. Neglect the mass...

A uniform rod of length 50. cm and mass 0.20 kg is placed on a
fulcrum at a distance of 40. cm from the left end of the rod. At
what distance from the right end of the rod should
a 0.60 kg mass be hung to balance the rod?

A 55-kg diver stands at the end of a diving board located 10 m
above the water level. The diving board is held down at one end by
an anchor bolt. The fulcrum is located at 1.4 m from the bolt and
the total length of the board is 3.9 m.
a) Draw a free body diagram showing the forces acting on the
diver.
(b) Calculate the torque that she exerts on the board with
respect to the fulcrum. Neglect...

Q2. A 55-kg diver stands at the end of a diving board located 10
m above the water level. The diving board is held down at one end
by an anchor bolt. The fulcrum is located at 1.4 m from the bolt
and the total length of the board is 3.9 m.
(a) Draw a free body diagram showing the forces acting
on the diver.
(b) Calculate the torque that she exerts on the board
with respect to the fulcrum....

The fulcrum of a uniform 20kg seesaw that is 4.0 m long is
located 2.5 m from one end. A 36-kg child sits on the long end.
Determine the mass a person at the other end would have to be in
order to balance the seesaw.
