Two steel I-beams, each with a mass of 100 kg, are welded together at right angles and lifted by vertical cables so that the beams remain in a horizontal plane. Compute the tension in each of the cables A, B, and C. Free body Diagram ∑M y for T A ∑M x with T B and T C F z adding all Combining F z and M x to solve for T B and T C .
The chain supported portion of a light fixture is in the shape of part of a spherical shell. If the mass of the glass unit is m, determine the tension T in each of the three chains. Since chains are symmetrical 3 ways draw free body diagram for one. Find α Then F y =0 to solve for T

### What students are saying

• 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
