\(\displaystyle\sum{F}_{{x}}\) Tension=R=AE
\(\displaystyle{A}{C}{x}=-{900}{l}{b}{s}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{D}{x}=-{12000}{\cos{{\left({30}\right)}}}=-{1039.23}{l}{b}{s}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{E}{x}={R}{\cos{{\left({50}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle\sum{F}_{{y}}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{C}{y}={0}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{D}{y}=-{600}{l}{b}{s}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{E}{y}=-{R}{\sin{{\left({50}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{C}{x}+{A}{D}{x}=-{1939.23}{l}{b}{s}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}{C}{y}+{A}{D}{y}=-{600}{l}{b}{s}\)
Just solve the following equations for R and P...
\(\displaystyle-{19.39}{.23}-{R}{\cos{{\left({50}\right)}}}=-{P}{\cos{{\left({65}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle-{600}-{R}{\sin{{\left({50}\right)}}}=-{P}{\sin{{\left({65}\right)}}}\)
You should get...
\(\displaystyle{R}={1659.45}{l}{b}{s}\)
\(\displaystyle{P}={2064.65}{l}{b}{s}\)

Assume that a ball of charged particles has a uniformly distributednegative charge density except for a narrow radial tunnel throughits center, from the surface on one side to the surface on the opposite side. Also assume that we can position a proton any where along the tunnel or outside the ball. Let \(\displaystyle{F}_{{R}}\) be the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the proton when it islocated at the ball's surface, at radius R. As a multiple ofR, how far from the surface is there a point where the forcemagnitude is 0.44FR if we move the proton(a) away from the ball and (b) into the tunnel?

The crane shown in the drawing is lifting a 182-kg crate upward with an acceleration of \(\displaystyle{1.5}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\). The cable from the crate passes over a solid cylindrical pulley at the top of the boom. The pulley has a mass of 130 kg. The cable is then wound ontoa hollow cylindrical drum that is mounted on the deck of the crane.The mass of the drum is 150 kg, and its radius is 0.76 m. The engine applies a counter clockwise torque to the drum in order towind up the cable. What is the magnitude of this torque? Ignore the mass of the cable.

A person bending forward to lift a load "with his back" rather than"with his knees" can be injured by large forces exerted on themuscles and vertebrae. A person is bending over to lift a200-N object. The spine and upper body are represented as auniform horizontal rod of weight 350 N, pivoted at the base of thespine. The erector spinalis muscle, attached at a pointtwo-thirds of the way up the spine, maintains the position of theback. The angle between the spine and this muscle is 12degrees. Find the tension in the back muscle and thecompressional force in the spine.

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

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 .)

A tow truck pulls a car that is stuck in the mud, with a force of 2500 N as in Fig P5.27 The tow cable is under tension and therefor pulls downward and to the left on the pin at its upper end. The light pin is held in equilibrium by forces exerted by the two bars A and B. Each bar is a strut that is, each is a bar whose weight is small compared to the forces it exerts, and which exerts forces only through hinge pins at its ends. Each strut exerts a force directed parallel to its length. Determine the force of tension or compression in each strut. Proceed as follows Make a guess as to which way (pushing or pulling ) each force acts on the top pin Draw a free-body diagram of the pin. Use the condition for equilibrium of the pin to translate the free-body diagram into equations. From the equations calculate the forces exerted by struts A and B. If you obtain a positive answer, you correctly guessed the direction of the force. A negative answer means the direction should be reversed, but the absolute value correction should be reversed, but the absolute value correctly gives the magnitude of the force. If a strut pulls of a pin, it is in tension. If it pushes, the strut is in compression. Identify whether each strut is in tension or in compression.
