Statement of a problem № 10386


A 10-ft beam, weighing 1200 lb, is to be moved to the left onto the platform. A horizontal force P is applied to the dolly, which is mounted on frictionless wheels. The coefficients of friction between all surfaces are μs = 0.30 and μk = 0.25, and initially x = 2 ft. Knowing that the top surface of the dolly is slightly higher than the platform, determine the force P required to start moving the beam.
