The solution is as shown in the picture
Hope u will be benefited
the correct answers were:
4 and 3
4 and 5
3 and 6
check the first picture attached. oh=48 and m(ohb)=20°.
|ob|=|oh|*sin20°=48 in * 0.342= 16.4 in
the handle of the handcart when lifted, moves around a circle formed, with center and radius |oh|=48 in.
to elevate the handle at 48 in off the ground, the handle first comes at point h', such that oh'//bh, then comes to point h" such that the distance of point h" to the ground is 48 inches. (check picture 1)
check picture 2, the distance of the point h'' to the line segment oh' is 48-16.4= 31.6 (inches)
31.6 = 48 * sinα
so α = arcsin(0.6583)=41.17°
similarly, instead of α, 20° is the greatest angle such that the content dont spill out, and let h be the height above the line segment oh'.
so the maximal height at the content dont spill is 16.4+16.4=32.8 (inches)
answer: 1. the contents would spill out, 2. maximal height: 32.8 inches
