Problem 17-48

The snowmobile has a weight of 250 lb, centered at G1, while the rider has a weight of 150 lb, centered at G2. If h = 3 ft, determine the snowmobiles maximum permissible acceleration a so that its front skid does not lift off the ground. Also, find the traction (horizontal) force and the normal reaction under the rear tracks at A.

TROUBLE SHOOTING PROCESS Step 1: Identify the Problem In this first step you already know that there is a problem; now you have to identify exactly what it is. This means gathering information. You do this in a few ways: . Question the user. Ask the person who reported the problem detailed questions about the issue.
