Aims: To determine the clamping force  exerted by the lever 2

Hypotheses and data

-The whole system has as plane of symmetry O, x, y) as indicated in the drawing.

-The weight of pieces is neglected.

-The contact action of link 5-1 is located at points B and C.

-The coefficient of adherence at B and C is f = tg φ = 0.2

-Under the contact action , the rod 5 tends to move toward the left.

-We are at the strict equilibrium.
