Yes, the answer is 0.275. Do you have a question?
Step 1: Determine the normal force of the rear leg to the ground. You can take sum of torques about the front tire contact point and set it to zero. Remember that the torque due to the weight is , where is the vector from the tire contact point to the center of mass.
Step 2: Determine the friction force of the rear leg, from sum of forces parallel to the incline = 0.
Step 3: coefficient of static friction = friction force divided by the normal force of the leg.
If you get stuck post back with your attempt and we can check it for you.
This part is wrong:
1. When you break the weight into these two components one acts in a clockwise direction about the tire and the other acts in a counter-clockwise fashion - hence the term involving the 40cm moment arm should be negative.
2. You have switched cosine and sine terms. So it should be:
Try it with these corrections.
for second part i did (100*300cos(6))-(60-40)*300sin(6)=150*R
N+R=300cos(6) where N is the perpendicular to the path solving this i get N=103.6 answer is 104 did i get things right?
