Problem 17PE

the 52.0-kg mountain climber in Figure 5.22. (a) Find the tension in the rope and the force that the mountain climber must exert with her feet on the vertical rock face to remain stationary. Assume that the force is exerted parallel to her legs. Also, assume negligible force exerted by her arms. (b) What is the minimum coefficient of friction between her shoes and the cliff?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 4 (a) he free body diagram with the components of the forces Step 2 of 4 Here is the tension in the rope. is the force in the legs of the climber. From the first condition of equilibrium for the X axis The force from the wall Step 3 of 4 From the first condition of equilibrium for the Y component Substitute F found in the previous step Step 4 of 4 is substituted in Hence, the force in the legs is and the tension in the rope is . Step 6 of 7 (b) The Normal force from the walls to the feet of the climber is the horizontal component of F. The frictional force is, Step 7 of 7 The vertical component of force in the legs is, In order for the feet of the climber not to slip, the friction force on the wall must be bigger or at least equal to the vertical component of F Hence, the minimum coefficient of friction is .
