Problem 5P

Two cords support a chandelier in the manner shown in Fig. 9–4 except that the upper wire makes an angle of 45° with the ceiling. If the cords can sustain a force of 1550 N without breaking, what is the maximum chandelier weight that can be supported?

Step-by-Step Solution:

SolutionStep 1 of 3 The impulse is large force acts on a body in short interval of timeWe know that pF t pF =k t where kis proportional constant its value is 1F = mv because linear momentum p=mv t mvF = t here m is constantF t=mvF t=p where p=p -p f iJ = p fp i So The impulse is defined as the change in the momentum.The expression for the impulse is expressed as,J = p -p f iHere,p ii the initial momentum, and p is thf final momentum.
