Now here is the part where I'm sort of stumped myself:
Could someone let me know if my reasoning is valid? The professor explained it during office hours and all I got out of that was that something cancels out and the answer is 0.
Okay, scratch all that. I managed to figure it out by finding similar problems. Thank you for the guidance. I hope that this post of mine is error-free!
We need to start by applying the right-hand rule to the applied torques, with the sign convention that a torque directed away from point E is...
Okay, I reworked the problem. I drew a torque diagram.
It seems that the maximum possible value of the unknown torque, T1, is 327 Nm.
From there, it seems that the internal shear stress in section CD is about 47 MPa, and the internal torque in DE causes the bar to hit its shear stress limit...
I wish to draw a proper free-body diagram for this shaft. However, my FBD does not agree with the solutions manual. If someone could point out where I erred, that would be great.
This is what I drew:
From my FBD, it is clear that the maximum torque is present in section DE of the shaft.
I got a non-response response, so I guess I'll just chalk this up to YET another case of bottom-barrel textbook editors doing bottom-barrel work in writing questions and solutions. Book in question is Hibbeler's Dynamics, 14th edition. I used Hibbeler's Statics text last semester, and the...
It seems that to solve the problem as stated would actually involve finding an equation relating the angle, theta, and the height on the wall, h. And then you would take the partial derivative of height equation with respect to theta to find the extrema.
I'm currently awaiting a response :).
That's a great question, and from my discussions and research, I was told that this assumption is incorrect in this problem.
That being said, the book's solution manual makes that assumption, and so does my Dynamics professor:
But it seems that even if we take this assumption as valid (which...
Using the equations for constant acceleration, we can write the following set of equations for this problem:
We have the following known physical constraints:
Solving the above system of equations and constraints with a computer algebra system:
So, all the solutions I found make...
Thanks, so what's the takeaway here for finding the final position of a particle that lands on a hill?
We have the book, which asks for "(x,-y)," and the book comes up with the "-y" displacement equation.
We have a famous professor on YouTube solving for "(x,y)" and he comes up with the same...
Summary:: After firing a projectile from the top of a hill, where does it land on the hill? I disagree with the professor in approach and final result.
Attempt to Solve:
I'm very familiar with these types of problems. I'm not here for help solving...
Attempt at a solution:
1) There are no relevant moments that need to be drawn in this free-body diagram.
2) There is tension in the chain DE that is pointed away from the truck, i.e. from D to E.
3) There are "ground" reaction forces at points A and B pointed up toward...
We can solve for the maximum 5 lux illumination distance with the above equation.
E = 10.76*(35,000/d^2)
d = 275 feet (approximately).
However, the 5 lux illumination distance is not 275 feet. The 35,000 cd value is not an axial intensity value. It is at a point that is slightly down and to...
I have a significant problem with the following excerpt from a general chemistry text:
Note that ON stands for oxidation number (state). The excerpt is with regard to polyatomic anions - specifically, chloride ion and its related polyatomic anions.
>It now follows that as...
This is my prof's explanation of Diels-Alder ... below is the mechanism and some resonance structures he drew to explain the concerted movement of electrons to the class ...
Nucleophiles attack electrophiles.
Electrons in HOMOs go into LUMOs.
The attempt at a solution
1) Is the above excerpt describing pi-backbonding? It seems to be describing some form of backbonding because the electron density is moving away from the positively charged metal cation (rather unexpected based on superficial Columbic analysis)...
Problem: I am told that the first mechanism is operative in saponification.
The Attempt at a Solution
However, this strikes me as wrong because the first mechanism involves the formation of dianion. Using hydroxide ion to abstract a proton and make that particular...
Yep, I realized that solvation is a factor. I mentioned this to my professor and although he did not outright disagree with me about solvation, he dismissed it as being basically too advanced for the students.
I could definitely see sterics having an effect on solvation of the conjugate base...
How do sterics affect basicity?
Sterics has to do with kinetics.
Basicity is a thermodynamic property.
Nucleophilicity is a kinetic property.
The Attempt at a Solution
So is the answer "sterics don't affect basicity"?
I can't see why sterics...
So if I'm understanding you correctly the reduction of H+ in water solution to hydrogen gas is dependent on the availability of protons. It is easier to take a positive charge from a positively charged molecule rather than a positive charge from a neutral molecule, so the reduction of H+ in...
