Question

A 12.0-kg horizontal plank 4.00 m long rests on two supports,
one at the left end and a second 1.00 m from the right end. What is
the magnitude of the force exerted on the plank by the support near
the right end?

____ N

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?

A board with a mass of 6 kg, which is 4 meters long, rests on
two supports. Support one is 0.14 meters to the right of the left
side of the board and support two is some distance to the left of
the right side of the board. The normal force from support 1 is 1/4
of the board's weight. If a force is applied 0.22 meters to the
right of second support vertically downwards, how much force is
required,...

(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...

A uniform plank of length 6.00 m and mass 27.0 kg rests
horizontally across two horizontal bars of a scaffold. The bars are
4.50 m apart, and 1.50 m of the plank hangs over one side of the
scaffold. Draw a free-body diagram of the plank.
How far can a painter with a mass of 74.0 kg walk on the
overhanging part of the plank before it tips?

A 175 kg horizontal beam is supported at each end. A 310 kg
piano rests a third of the way from one end.
What is the vertical force on the support closest to the
piano?
N
What is the vertical force on the support furthest from the
piano?
N

A 1.40 kg box rests on a plank that is inclined at an angle of
29° above the horizontal. The upper end of the box is attached to a
spring with a force constant of 21 N/m, as shown in the figure. If
the coefficient of static friction between the box and the plank is
0.80, what is the maximum amount the spring can be compressed and
the box remain at rest?

A 20 kg, 10 m long aluminum painter’s plank is supported by a
cable at each end. When the painter is standing somewhere on the
plank, the left cable exerts a force of 400 N and the right cable
exerts a force of 600 N. Determine the mass and location of the
painter standing on the plank. What assumptions did you make?
Main focus should be conceptually deriving the Equations
and less focus on numerically solving equation.

A 160 kg horizontal beam is supported at each end. A 280 kg
piano rests a quarter of the way from one end.
What is the vertical force on each of the supports? Express your
answer using two significant figures. Enter your answers
numerically separated by a comma.

A board has a length of 3 meters and it rests horizontally on
two supports. Support 1 is 0.21 meters from the left end of the
board and support 2 is 0.28 meters from the right end of the board.
The normal force from support 2 is 15 Newtons. What is the weight
of the board in Newtons?

A 140-kg horizontal beam is supported at the ends A and B. A
350-kg piano rests a quarter of the way from the end A.
Determine the magnitude of the vertical force on the support at
A.
Determine the magnitude of the vertical force on the support at
B.
