Hence, the normal force equation requires that -2T( N= ~O)_~T( ~O) = -M' = _ :~. , we establish our coordinate system where the belt first contacts the surface), then InTs = 0 + Cl -7lnT -lnTs = JisO, or 36 1. Introduction l{~) = Jls9~ T = TseJlsfJ. 16. We see, therefore, that in contrast to the frictionless pulley wherein Tl = T2 , here the ratio of the two tensions is exponentially dependent on the angle of contact and the coefficient of friction.

One of the key questions facing biomechanics and mechanobiology, therefore, is how are these many different changes effected? In other words, how does a cell sense a changing mechanical environment and how is this signal transduced to the nucleus wherein different genes are expressed? This question becomes more acute when we realize, for example, that vascular smooth muscle cells independently express different genes in response to the changing hemodynamics even though they are not in direct contact with the pressure-driven blood flow.
