## Problem 511 | Friction

**Problem 511**

Find the least value of P required to cause the system of blocks shown in Fig. P-511 to have impending motion to the left. The coefficient of friction under each block is 0.20.

## Problem 510 | Friction

**Problem 510**

What weight W is necessary to start the system of blocks shown in Fig. P-510 moving to the right? The coefficient of friction is 0.10 and the pulleys are assumed to be frictionless.

## Problem 509 | Friction

**Problem 509**

The blocks shown in Fig. P-509 are connected by flexible, inextensible cords passing over frictionless pulleys. At A the coefficients of friction are μ_{s} = 0.30 and μ_{k} = 0.20 while at B they are μ_{s} = 0.40 and μ_{k} = 0.30. Compute the magnitude and direction of the friction force acting on each block.

## Problem 340 - 341 | Equilibrium of Parallel Force System

**Problem 340**

For the system of pulleys shown in Fig. P-340, determine the ratio of W to P to maintain equilibrium. Neglect axle friction and the weights of the pulleys.

## Problem 319 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

**Problem 319**

Cords are loop around a small spacer separating two cylinders each weighing 400 lb and pass, as shown in Fig. P-319 over a frictionless pulleys to weights of 200 lb and 400 lb . Determine the angle θ and the normal pressure N between the cylinders and the smooth horizontal surface.
