A cable is placed around three parallel pipes. Two of the pipes are fixed and do not rotate; the third pipe is slowly rotated. Knowing that the coefficients of friction are μs = 0.25 and μk = 0.20, determine the largest weight W that can be raised
(a) If only pipe A is rotated counterclockwise,
(b) If only pipe C is rotated clockwise. |
