Tutorial Problem Set # 1 Assigned: 9142006 Due: 9—20—2006, 10:10 am. 1. Determine the components of the 325 kN force with respect to:
a) (x, y) axes b) (x’, y’) axes c) (a, b) axes {by 1M] 2. Determine the resultant of the four forces shown. Use an algebraic solution.
Show the resultant on a separate sketch. 7” 74. n} ‘55er 3. A line between points A and B gives the direction of the 90 N force.

A third cable AC is used as a guy wire. Determine the tension in AC,
knowing the resultant of the forces exerted at A by the three cables must be horizontal. (Hint: sum components in the vertical direction.)
