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

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.

An elevator (mass 4850 kg) is to be designed so that themaximum acceleration is 0.0600g. What is the maximum and the minimum forces the motor should exert on the supportingcable?

I already know how to find the maximum force (just multiplyingthe maximum acceleration by the mass), but I've got no clue as tohow to find the minimum acceleration when no minimum accelerationhas been found.
