# 0.14 Phy1110: force -- moments, torque, couple, and equilibrium  (Page 11/13)

 Page 11 / 13

In the absence of the forces P and Q, the force R would produce the same turning effect on the bar as do the forces P and Q jointly.

If the magnitude of R were not equal to the magnitude of W, the vector sum of the forces would not be zero, there would be a torque about any point on the barother than at the point C, and the bar would not be in equilibrium.

## Exercise involving a bar supported at only one point

Tactile graphics

The file named Phy1110c1.svg contains a vector diagram that represents this scenario. All of the action occurs near the right end of the bar, so only theright end is shown in the image.

Figure 8 shows the mirror image that is contained in that file for the benefit of your assistant who will create the tactile graphicfor this exercise.

Unlike or antiparallel

It's time to modify your drawing to reflect a different scenario.

Make your bar 20 units in length. Draw a downward force labeled Q at the right end of the bar. Label this as point C on the bar.

Draw an upward force labeled P somewhere on the bar. Label the location of this point on the bar as A

In this case, we have two parallel forces, P and Q pulling in opposite directions but not in the same line of action. These forces are said to be unlike or antiparallel .

Draw a downward force labeled W somewhere to the left of A. Label this point as B and consider it to be the horizontal origin. Directions to the right of Bare positive directions.

Label the horizontal distance from B to A as a. Label the horizontal distance from A to C as b.

What is required for equilibrium?

We can look at this scenario and tell that the forces labeled W and P, both of which point down, must be on opposite sides of the force labeled P.Otherwise, the bar will rotate in a clockwise direction.

The following two conditions must be true for the bar to be in equilibrium.

P + W + Q = 0, or

P = - (W + Q) (vector sum must be zero)

a*P + (a+b) * Q = 0 (moments around point B)

The plan

We will set values for all the variables in the twoconditions other than a and P and then solve for values of a and P that will result in the bar being in equilibrium .

• Let W = -10
• Let Q = -5
• Let b = 2

The computations

Substituting these values into the two conditions and rearranging terms gives us:

P = -(W + Q), or

P = 15 , this is one of the answers

a*P +(a+2)*(-5) = 0, or

15*a -5*a -10 = 0, or

10*a = 10, or

a = 1 , this is the other answer

Therefore, for the values of W, Q, and b given above , P must be equal to 15 and a must be equal to 1 for the bar to be in equilibrium.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world

after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
