Problem 1 : (25 points) The dimensions of a rectangular box, as shown in the figure, are 6,8, and 10. A is at the middle point of a long edge. (1) Determine vectors OA and OB in Cartesian form; (2) Determine the angle between the two vectors (in degrees); (3) Determine the orthogonal projection of OA onto OB, proj 0~ OA.

Unformatted text preview: (3) Draw the resultant force in the given fimre to approximately show its magnitude and direction. Problem 3: (25 points) A body with a mass of 300 kg is supported by the flexible cable systems shown in the figure below. Determine the magnitudes of tensions in cables A, B, C, D, and E. Note: draw all free body diagrams involved. Problem 4: (25 points) For the following set of linear equations: x, + x, + x, = 1 x, - 2x2 + 4x, = 4 x, +3x2 +x, = 3 + (1) Write down the augmented matrix; (2) Find the reduced row-echelon form of the augmented matrix, by using Gauss-Jordan elimination; (3) Find the solution from the reduced row-echelon form...
