Unformatted text preview: equilibrium. (Hint: The tension in the rope is the same on either side of the pulley – Extra points for why this is so.) Problem #3: A transmission tower is held by three guy wires attached to a pin at A and anchored by bolts at B , C , D . If the tension in wire AB is 3.6 kN, determine the vertical force P exerted by the tower on the pin A . (Hint: You will get a set of three equations in three unknowns which you will need to solve) Problem #4: A 750kg crate is supported by three cables as shown. Determine the tension in each cable. (Hint: You will get a set of three equations in three unknowns which you will need to solve)...
