ENGR 211 Fall 2007 Recitation 1 27 & 28 September 2007 Do your work in proper engineering format. 1. Find the volume of the object shown. Show 3 significant figures in units of mm 3 . Hint: break up the object into sections of regular geometric shapes. Try setting up the solution in a table. 2. When oil under pressure is put in the cylinder, the shaft pushes out and compresses the spring. If: the oil pressure is 1000 psi; the inside diameter of the cylinder is 6 inches; the spring is initially 3 ft. long and has a spring constant, k , of 16,000 pounds per

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 Δ 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 θ . You can move a vector along or parallel to its line of action without affecting its direction....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
