Unformatted text preview: PROBLEM 2.5 Two control rods are attached at A to lever AB. Using trigonometry and knowing that the force in the left-hand rod is F1 2 120 N, determine 172 (a) the required force F2 in the right-hand rod if the resultant R of the forces exerted by the rods on the lever is to be vertical, (1)) the corresponding magnitude of R. §OLUTION Graphically, by the triangle law We measure: F2 5 108 N 'R s 77 N By trigonometry: Law of Sines F2 R - 120 sina sin38° sinfi‘ a = 90°— 28° = 62°,fi = 180° — 62° —38° = 80° F2 R _ 120N sin 62° sin38° sin80° or (:1) F2 =107.6N 4 (b) R = 75.0 N 4 PROBLEM 2.10 To steady a sign as it is being lowered, two cables are attached to the sign at A. Using trigonometry and knowing that the magnitude of P is 300 N, determine (a) the required angle a if the resultant R of the two forces applied at A is to be vertical, (b) the corresponding magnitude of R. SOLUTION Using the triangle rule and the Law of Sines 360N _ 300N (a) Have: . _ 5111 a sm35° sina: = 0.68829 5 =180 — (35° + 435°) =101.5° R _300N sin101.5° sin35° or R=513Ni PROBLEM 2.28 Activator rod AB exerts on crank BCD a force P directed along line AB. Knowing that P must have a 25-1b component perpendicular to arm BC of the crank, determine (a) the magnitude of the force P, (17) its component along line BC. SOLUTION Using the x and y axes shown. (a) or P = 25.91134 PROBLEM 2.41 Boom AB is held in the position shown by three cables. Knowing that the tensions in cables AC and AD are 4 kN and 5.2 kN, respectively, determine (a) the tension in cable AE if the resultant of the tensions exerted at point A of the boom must be directed along AB, (5)) the corresponding magnitude of the resultant. - SOLUTION Choose x-axis along bar AB. Then (a) Require R = 2F), = 0: (4 kN)cosZS° + (5.2 kN)sin35° — TAE sh165° = 0 01- TAE = 7.2909 kN TAE = 7.29 kN 4 (b) R = 2F: = —(4 kN)sin25° — (5.2 kN)c0335° — (7.2909 kN)cos 65° = —9.03 kN PROBLEM 2.43 Two cables are tied together at C and are loaded as shown. Determine the tension (:1) in cable AC, (12) in cable BC. SOLUTION Free-Body Diagram 60:: Ho From the geometry, we calculate the distances: AC = (16 in.)2 + (12 in.)2 = 20 in. BC = (20 in.)2 + (21 in.)2 = 29 in. Then, from the Free Body Diagramof point C: 16 21 29 4 T = __ x __T BC 21 5 AC 12 20 and +1sz = o; EETAC + 39-ch — 600 lb = o 12 20 29 4 ' or —T +—-— —-T —6001b=0 20 AC 29[21x 5 AC] TAG = 440.561b PROBLEM 2.57 : :4 ”3‘ A block of weight W is suspended fi'om a SOD-mm long cord and two 5: "3°“ springs of which the unstretehed lengths are 450 mm. Knowing that the constants of the springs are kg = 1500 Min and kw = 500 N/m, WW" determine (a) the tension in the cord, (17) the weight of the block. SOLUTION Free-Body Diagram At A Fixst note from‘geometry: The sides of the tn'angle with hypotenuse AD are in the ratio 8:15: 17. The sides of the triangle with hypotenuse AB are in the ratio 3:415. The sides of the triangle with hypotenuse AC are in the ratio 7:24:25. Then: FAB = 19139143 — L0) LAB = (0.44 m)2 + (0.33 m)2 = 0.55m FAB = 1500 N/m(0.55 m — 0.45 m) =150N Similarly, FAD = kAD(LAD — La) LAD = (0.66 m)2 + (0.32 m)2 = 0.68m FAD = 1500 N/m(0.63 m — 0.45 m) =115N' _+- 2s; = 0: ——:—(150 N) +§7§TAC — £015 N) = 0 PROBLEM 2.57 CONTINUED (b) and 24 8 +125, = 0: 2(150N) + —(66.18N) + —(115 N) —W = 0 5 25 17 or W=208N4 ...

    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.
