Homework Statement
A solid sphere of radius R and mass M is placed in a wedge. The inner surfaces of the wedge are frictionless. Determine force exerted at point A and point B.
Homework Equations
ƩF=0
Ʃτ=0
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm pretty baffled about how to apply these equations to this situation. I would say to use some torque and the given angles to determine what force is applied. However, the forces are applied parallel to the distance traveled, so there is no torque from that.
