Question

a. A uniform beam of mass 20 kg and length L is supported horizontally by a hinge at the wall and a metal wire at the far end. The wire can support a maximum of 840 N. The wire makes a 60 degree angle with the wall where it attaches. A 40 kg mass is placed on the beam. How far away from the wall can the mass be placed without breaking the wire? (The moment of inertia about the center of mass for a beam is 1/12 ML^2 and about one end is 1/3 ML^2)

b. A uniform beam of mass 20 kg and length 13 m is supported horizontally by a hinge at the wall and a metal wire at the far end. A 40 kg mass is moved slowly outward until the wire breaks when the mass is 5.2 m away from the wall. What is the initial magnitude of the angular acceleration of the beam when the string breaks? (The moment of inertia about the center of mass for a beam is 1/12 ML^2 and about one end is 1/3 ML^2)

Answer #1

The initial angular acceleration is 1.18 rad/s^{2}

A
man with mass 80 kg begins walking out to the end of a 5 m long
beam that is supported by a hinge attached to a building at one end
and a cable that makes a 30° to the horizontal at the other end.
This cable can withstand 2000N of tension until it breaks.
a) How far can the man walk before the cable breaks?
b) Just when the cable snaps, what is the angular velocity?

a point d = 0.881L from the wall. A small box of
mass 82.6 kg slides on the beam. Find the value of x, the
distance from the wall to the small box in meters, for which the
tension in the wire is 23.5 times...

A uniform beam of length 1.0 m and mass 10 kg is attached to a
wall by a cable. The beam is free to pivot at the point where it
attaches to the wall. What is the tension in the cable? (THE ANGLE
IS 30 degrees)

A steel beam of mass m= 5 kg and length L=1.50 m is attached to
a fixed point P about which it can rotate without friction.

vertical ; as shown in the picture. The moment of inertia of the
beam about tis center of mass is Mb^2/12. Now the beam is released
first rest.
a) calculate the touque of weight if the beam about prvot P at
the...

A uniform steel beam (mass 43.7 kg, length 9.79 m) is hinged at
one end to a wall and has two wires attached at the other end. Wire
1 (length 4.67 m) is horizontal and is attached to the wall, and
wire 2 is vertical and is attached to the floor If the system is in
equilibrium and the tension in wire 2 is 130 N, find the magnitude
of the tension in wire 1, in
N.

A uniform metal rod, with a mass of 3.0 kg and a length of 1.1 m
, is attached to a wall by a hinge at its base. A horizontal wire
bolted to the wall 0.55 mabove the base of the rod holds the rod at
an angle of 30 ? above the horizontal. The wire is attached to the
top of the rod.
(a) Find the tension in the wire
T = ________ N
(b) Find the hortizonal component...

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.
