Problem 8.62

A 5 wedge is to be forced under a 1400-lb machine base at A. Knowing that the coefficient of static friction at all surfaces is 0.20, (a) determine the force P required to move the wedge, (b) indicate whether the machine base will move.

ENGR 121 11/21/2016 Spencer Kociba ● Statistics ○ Mean ■ Average of numbers ○ Standard deviation and variance ■ 2 ways of determining the spread of data ○ mode(x) ■ Identifies the most frequently occurring value ○ sort(x) ■ Sorts vector from minimum value to max value ○ median(x) ■ Finds the middle number in a vector ■ Note: to find the median of a set of data, sort it first then use the median function ○ Median Filtering ■ Size of a median filter is calculating the median of every n values in that size ■ function medFiltVec = medianNFilte
