1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A dockworker adjusts a spring line (rope) which keeps a ship from drifting alongside a wharf. If he exerts a pull of 190 N on the rope, which has 1.25 turns around the mooring bit, what force T can he support? The coefficient of friction between the rope and the cast-steel mooring bit is 0.35. 2. Relevant equations T2=T1eμβ where T2 is in the direction of impending motion. 3. The attempt at a solution Not sure what i am missing here, it looks right to me.
