Unformatted text preview: Use the method of sections to determine the forces in members BC, CF, and EF of the truss shown in Fig. P7-49. SOLUTION For this simple truss, the member forces can be determined without solving for the support reactions. From a free-body diagram of the part of the truss to the right of member BF: + C EM C = —TEF{8 sin 30°} - 1500(3 cos 30°) = o TEF = -2593 1b a 2600 lb (0) 0 . 0 .
