Unformatted text preview: foot. What is the length of the compressed spring? Hint: the force from the cylinder, F = pA , is the force on the spring, F = k L. 3. When the length of the cord AC , l = 4 ft. , what is the tension acting along AC to 2 significant figures? What is the tension in AB? Hint: the system is in equilibrium. Replace the cords with force vectors acting along the same lines of action then rearrange the vectors to form a closed triangle and find . You can move a vector along or parallel to its line of action without affecting its direction....
