AP Physics Torque and Equilibrium Practice
A uniform beam weighs 200 N and holds a 450 N object as shown in the figure below. Find the magnitudes of the forces exerted on the beam by the two supports at its ends.
Where must an 800 N object be hung on a uniform, 100 N pole so that a girl (P) at one end supports 1/3 as much as a woman (3P) at the other end?
A uniform, 200 N board of length L has two objects hanging from it: 300 N at L/3 from one end, and 400 N at 3L/4 from the same end. What additional single force (P) acting on the board will cause the board to be in equilibrium?
Consider the situation shown below. The uniform, 600 N beam is hinged at P. Find the tension in the tie rope and the components of the force exerted by the hinge on the beam.
A uniform, 400 N boom is supported as shown in the figure below. Find the tension in the tie rope and the force exerted on the boom by the pin at P.
As shown in the figure, hinges A and B hold a uniform, 400 N door in place. The upper hinge supports the entire weight of the door. Find the forces exerted on the door at the hinges. The width of the door is h/2, where h is the distance between the hinges.
A ladder leans against a smooth wall. (By a “smooth” wall, we mean that the wall only exerts a perpendicular force on the wall. There is no friction force.) The ladder weighs 200 N and its center of gravity is 0.4 L from the base, where L is the ladder’s length. (a) How large a friction force must exist at the base of the ladder if it is not to slip? (b) What is the necessary coefficient of friction?
