The figure shows 3 crates being pushed over a concrete floor by a horizontal force f of magnitude 440N. The masses of the cratesare \(\displaystyle{m}_{{1}}={30}\) kg, \(\displaystyle{m}_{{2}}={10}\) kg, and \(\displaystyle{m}_{{3}}={20}\) kg.The coefficient of kineticfriction between the floor and each of the crates is 0.7. a) what is the magnitude \(\displaystyle{F}_{{{32}}}\) of the force on crate 3 from crate 2? b) If the crates then slide onto a polished floor, where the coefficientof kinetic friction is less than 0.700, is magnitude \(F_{32}\) more than,less than, or the same as it was when the coeffient was 0.700?

a) \(\displaystyle{F}={m}{a}\)
first we have to find the net acceleration of the system.
After you find the acceleration, multiply it by \(\displaystyle{m}_{{3}}\) and that wikk be the answer
b) \(\displaystyle{F}_{{{32}}}\) will be higher before.
In our equation, a smaller \(\displaystyle\mu\) will result in a large numerator, and a larger acceleration. Since \(\displaystyle{F}={m}{a}\), a high acceleration will also increase the force.

A pair of forces with equal magnitudes, opposite directions,and different lines of action is called a "couple". When acouple acts on a rigid object, the couple produces a torque thatdoes not depend on the location of the axis. The drawing shows acouple acting on a tire wrench, each force being perpendicular tothe wrench. Determine an expression for the torque produced by thecouple when the axis is perpendicular to the tired and passesthrough (a) point A, (b) point B, and (c) point C. Express youranswers in terms of the magnitude F of the force and the length Lof the wrench

When a person stands on tiptoe (a strenuous position), the position of the foot is as shown in Figure (a). The total gravitational force on the body, vector F g, is supported by the force vector n exerted by the floor on the toes of one foot. A mechanical model of the situation is shown in Figure (b), where vector T is the force exerted by the Achilles tendon on the foot and vector R is the force exerted by the tibia on the foot. Find the values of vector T , vector R , and θ when vector F g = 805 N. (Do not assume that vector R is parallel to vector T .)

In the figure below, the rolling axle, 1.43 m long, is pushed along horizontal rails at a constant speed \(v = 3.36 m/s\).
A resistor \(R = 0.325\) ohm is connected to the rails at points a and b, directly opposite each other. (The wheels make good electrical contact with the rails, and so the axle, rails, and R form a closed-loop circuit. The only significant resistance in the circuit is R.) There is a uniform magnetic field \(B = 0.0850 T \)vertically downward. Calculate the induced current I in the resistor and what horizontal force F is required to keep the axle rolling at constant speed?
