1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A large tower crane is used to move heavy objects in a construction site. The crane uses a counter weight with a mass of mw = 1w.0 Mg (mega grams), and the top beam of the crane also has a mass of mc = 1x00.0 kg which is evenly distributed along the beam. The length of the top beam of the crane is L = 5y0.0 m. The counter weight can position a maximum distance - c = 1z0.0 m from the vertical support of the crane, and the load can be positioned a maximum distance of (L-c) from the vertical support of the crane. w,x,y and z refer to various integers. b) While at its maximum reach, if the crane was to lift a mass of 1,000 kg and needed to lift this mass at an acceleration of 0.25g , where should the counter weight be positioned during this acceleration (distance – b)? 2. Relevant equations Your standard distance from the fulcrum multiplied by weight equations. 3. The attempt at a solution I've spent about an two hours trying to figure this out. I'm pretty stumped though. Don't have any workings as I don't have a clue as to what the idea of this problem is. I don't need a fully worked solution, just a bump in the right direction. Thanks!
