4 (a) Two blocks A and B are resting against a wal the floor as shown in figure. Find horizontal forces 'P' applied to the lower block that will hold the system in equilibrium. Take ?=0.25 at floor, ?=0.3 at wall and ?=0.2 between the blocks WA=500 N, We=1000 N. (10 marks) 4 (b) Find moment of Inertia of the shaded are as shown in figure about its references x and y axls. (10 marks) 5 (a) A train leaves station 'A' and attains speed at the rate of 4 m/s2 for 6 sec and then 6 m/s2 till it reaches a velocity of 48 m/s. Further the velocity remains constatnt, then brakes are applied giving the train a constant deacceleration stopping it in 6 sec. If the total running time between two stations is 40 sec. plot a-t, v-t and x-t curve. Determine distance between two stations.(10 marks) 5 (b) A spring is used to stop 100 kg package which is moving down a 30? incline. The spring has constant k=30 kN/m is held by cables so that it is initially compressed by 90 mm. If the velocities of package is 5 m/s, when it is 9 m from spring. Determine the maximum additional deformation of spring in bringing the package to rest. Assume coefficient between block and incline as 0.2 (10 marks) 6 (a) Two smooth balls collides as shown in figure. If mA= 1 kg, mB=2kg and e= 0.75 Find the velocities after impact. (10 marks) 6 (b) A ball throw down the incline strike the incline at adistance of 75 m along. If the ball rises 20 m above the point of projection. Complete the initial velocity and angle of projection with horizontal. (10 marks) 7 (a) The system shown in figure is released from rest. What is the height lost by bodies A, B and C in 2 seconds?
