Question:
The cam is subjected to a couple moment of M. Determine the minimum force P that should be applied to the follower in order to hold the cam in the position shown.
The coefficient of static friction between the cam and the follower is μs. The guide at A is smooth.
Given:
a = 10 mm
b = 60 mm
M = 5 N ∙ m
μ s = 0.4
M

In Physics, a force is an influence that can change the motion of an object. A force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity, i.e., to accelerate. Force can also be described intuitively as a push or a pull. A force has both magnitude and direction, making it a vector quantity. In this video, the concept of force and torque is demonstrated with the practical application of changing the flat tire of the car.
