Problem 17P

(II) Figure 9-50 shows a pair of forceps used to hold a thin plastic rod firmly. If the thumb and finger each squeeze with a force FT = FF = 11 .ON, what force do the forceps jaws exert on the plastic rod?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution

When we squeeze the plastic object with the forceps as in the figure. The forces are shown on one arm of the forceps.

Ffinger=11N  ( the force applied by fingers)

Fplastic =?       (the reaction force applied by the plastic object to one arm of the forceps)

Ffinger and Fplastic provide equal torques in opposite directions according to pivot point O.
