Question details

QUESTION THREE (40 Marks) Answer all of question three with numerical scalar values with units A Penny-Farthing bicycle is parked on a steep Wellington road (30). The bike including wheels weighs 10kg, with a centre of mass situated 400mm back from the centre of the front wheel. The front wheel has a mass of 3kg, a radius of 600mm, and radius of gyration of 600mm. The back wheel has a mass of 0.5kg, a radius of 200mm and a radius of gyration of 200mm. The back wheel is locked such that it does not rotate relative to the bike frame. The coefficients of static friction of both wheels are 0.8N/N and 0.75N/N for static and kinetic friction, respectively. Gravity equals 10N/kg.

Determine the normal forces of both wheels.
