Mine Hoist Problem, Hint #3
The original Mine Hoist Problem was posted 23 August, and it is not 10 October, over 6 weeks later. Thus far, I have not received any attempts at a solution. In this third (and probably last) hint, I want to explore some new ideas and also re-work much of the second hint in vector form. It will be

Mine Hoist Problem, Hint #2
The original Mine Hoist Problem was posted 25 August 2020, and the first Hint was given on 8 September. We are now almost one month into this problem, and thus far no one has sent me even so much as a question other than Tim Dennison's request for a video. I'm not quite sure how to understand this. I see
It appears that only a very few folks are even attempting these problems, but it also appears that no one has sent me a solution. For that reason, a small hint seems to be in order.
Hint: Turn the picture upside down. For most of us, it is conceptually easier to think about the problem if the X-axis goes to the right and the Y-axis is upward. Of course, if you do this, you must recall that gravity then acts up, not down.
Don't be shy; give it a try!!
The constant evolution of technology has meant that companies in the technology sector must adapt every day. For this reason, many mechanisms have been created to reduce production costs and increase the productivity and efficiency of their business models. So, we will talk about obsolescence, or end of life of the electronic components we use every day. What options do we have for an electronics component going end of life? Since, as mentioned above, part of the companies' strategies are based

A Hoisting Problem for Engineers
A Learning Experience in Machine Design
There is a document available on the Internet at several locations with the title 2.003 Problem Archive by MIT Professor David Trumper, Last Updated April 19, 2005. It is a collection of engineering problems, some
The previous post on this topic was certainly acceptable for engineering purposes, but there was one small oversight in the model. Many would actually prefer that oversight because it makes the algebra quite a bit less complex. Even so, it is not quite correct, so this revised post is offered to correct the oversight.
There are also a few additional comments that may be of interest, and a final question for the readers to consider.
Nowadays, the construction industry is echoing with the word "Sustainability." Everyone seems to be focused on finding more sustainable design solutions for building structures and objects.
The moment we realized that we would have to work on installing eco-friendly systems to help the planet recover from the damage done by human hand, most new construction projects were required to be eco-friendly.
However, going green isn't as simple as it sounds. It's a huge challenge, and worki

Why You Should NOT Use the D'Alembert's Principle
I think it is safe to say that every engineering student studies both Statics and Dynamics. We are told that Statics is easier than Dynamics, which is often true but not so in all cases. When we get to Dynamics, many teachers, particularly physics teachers, will urge the use of something called D'Alembert's Principle. The

A Bad Example
Most of us are inclined to trust an established textbook. We assume (1) the author knows what he is talking about, (2) the book has been carefully vetted by several editors and reviewers, and finally (3) the fact that it is well established in the market means that thousands of other readers have tacitly endorsed it as well. While these assumptions are usually true, they are no guarantee, and they
Governor sensitivity is the ratio of
A. range of speed to the mean speed
B. maximum speed to the minimum speed
C. mean speed to the range of speed
D. effort of governor to the range of speed
E. governor lift to the range of speed
Today, I have a question for readers. I'd like to get everyone who is willing to answer the same question, but also tell me whether you are a practicing graduate engineer or if you currently a student. I think these two groups will answer somewhat differently, so it is important that you identify which one you fall into.
The question is really simple: When you ask for help, what do you really want? Are you asking for someone to step in and solve a problem for you? Or, are you asking for a f

What Would You Like to Know?
If you could ask me any question you want, what would you like to know that you think I might know? I certainly do not know everything, but through the years I have accumulated a certan amount of knowledge that I'd like to pass on to you. Therefore, I ask, what would you like to know?
Many readers are still in college, and no doubt they would like to know what is going to be on the next exam. I'm sorry, but I have no way to know that. What I might be able
