1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data . Suppose you are pushing a 60 N uniform crate at rest with a horizontal force of 40 N exerted at the top as shown. The crate is a cube with length of L. If the coefficient of static friction between the crate and floor is 0.75, which statement below is correct? (Hint: If the crate is about to pivot at point O, the normal force will act at point O, and not through the center of mass.) a. The crate will slide along the surface with constant speed. b. The crate will slide along the surface speeding with constant acceleration. c. The crane will slide along the surface speeding to a maximum speed and then continue to with that speed. d. The crate does not budge to your force, it neither slides nor pivots. e. The crate will pivot at point O. pic : http://i49.tinypic.com/16p2x1.png 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I did Fs = us * Fn = 0.6 x 60 = 45 So since applied force is greater than frictional force, the crate should pivot?? then how is this using torque to solve the quesiton?
