Statement of a problem № 10343


A 15° wedge is forced into a saw cut to prevent binding of the circular saw. The coefficient of static friction between the wedge and the wood is 0.25. Knowing that a horizontal force P with a magnitude of 30 lb was required to insert the wedge, determine the magnitude of the forces exerted on the board by the wedge after insertion.
