- Homework Statement:
- A 1400-kg jet engine is fastened to the fuselage of a passenger jet by just three bolts (this is the usual practice). Assume that each bolt supports one-third of the load. Calculate the force on each bolt as the plane waits in line for clearance to take off.
- Relevant Equations:
My solution was that there would be a force of 0 Newtons on the bolt as the bolt is not moving. But this answer is wrong. Where am I going wrong?
