Homework Help: Work done by driver plate

  1. Dec 10, 2011 #1
    Show that the work done by the driver plate during a stress accumulation phase is W=[itex]\frac{2m2g2fd}{k}[/itex](fs-fd


    I'm not sure where to start with this. I am given several equations but can't reach the desired equation.
    Fn=ρghA
    m=ρA3/2
    θ=[itex]\frac{fs}{fd}[/itex]
    X=[itex]\frac{xG}{2fsρghA1/2}[/itex]
    U=[itex]\frac{u}{fsgh}[/itex]([itex]\frac{G}{2ρ}[/itex])1/2

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
