I have made Image which is self explanatory. It has the question
Suppose I have a metal plate that is travelling at V m/s.
A stationary body acts as a shearing body. When the metal plate contacts the still body, it starts to shear off. The plane in which it will be sheared is shown in diagram (red line). So I want to ask how much force will get applied for the shearing.
This is just an idea that I'm working through. I haven't seen this in any book that I have read (I haven't yet seen various books yet). This problem came in my mind yesterday while I was dreaming.
Also I am assuming that the acceleration of the moving plate will be equal to change in velocity (after shearing the plate stops), so a = (0 - V) / 1 (unit time)
So question is
how much mass should be considered for the equation F = ma ?
basically I want to calculate force required.
If am wrong in some calculation then correct me.
