###### Question:

As shown in the figure below, a uniform beam is supported by a cable at one end and the force of friction at the other end. The cable makes an angle of θ = 30°,the length of the beam is L= 4.00 m, the coefficient of static friction between the wall and the beam is μs = 0.500, and the weight of the beam is represented by w. Determine the minimum distance x from point A at which an additional weight 2w (twice the weight of the rod) can be hung without causing the rod to slip at point A.

Finding the charge to mass (e/m) ratio of the electron Often in physics, we look for ways to find fundamental physical constants. From the set-up demonstrated in class, we are able to find a monumental combination of two physical constants-the charge of an electron (e) and the mass of an electron (m...
