Yeah - so this WAS on our homework, but our professor was even stumped at first...Eventually he figured it out, but he told us not to worry about it. But of course, I'm SUPER curious! Can someone help me figure this out? http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/4610/staticskg2.gif It's a 10 degree wedge with an 80 kg cylinder resting on it. The coefficient of static friction between all surfaces of contact is 0.25. You need to determine the force P so that the motion of the wedge is impending. Please help! I'm super curious as to how the HECK you're supposed to figure this out. =) Thanks!
