The oil drum weighs 620 lb
when full and has a mass center at
G. Calculate the vertical force P
required to maintain equilibrium
of the drum and dolly in the
position shown. The weight of the
dolly may be neglected compared
with that of the drum.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry I have to leave now....but you have two variables Fv and P and you can get your answer by balancing torque and forces. You might want to post this question in physics section
