Unformatted text preview: SOLUTION re, PROBLEM 2.55 The cabin of an aerial tramway is suspended from a set of wheels that can roll freely on the support cable ACE and is being pulled at a constant speed by cable DE. Knowing that a = 40° and ,6 = 35°, that the combined weight of the cabin, its support system, and its passengers is 24.8 kN, and assuming the tension in cable DF to be negligible, determine the tension (51) in the support cable ACE, (b) in the traction cable DE. Note: In Problems 2.55 and 2.56 the cabin is considered as a particle. If considered as a rigid body (Chapter 4) it would be found that its center of gravity should be located to the left of the centerline for the line CD to be vertical. Now i. 2F, = 0: TACB[cos3S° — cos40°) — TDE cos40° = 0 and +1213, 2 o: TACB(sin4O° — sin35°) + TDEsin40° — 24.8kN = 0 0.0692110? + 0.6143be = 24.8kN From (1) TACB = 14.426TDE Then, from (2) 0.0692(14.426TDE) + 0.643TDE = 24.8 kN (b) TDE =1s.1kN4 (a) TACB = 4 ‘ t fl—fl PROBLEM 2.77 y A horizontal circular plate is suspended as shown from three wires which are attached to a support at D and form 30° angles with the vertical. Knowing that the x component of the force exerted by wire AD on the plate is 220.6 N, determine (a) the tension in wire AD, (13) the angles 1%, By, and 6; that the force exerted at A forms with the coordinate axes. 3 I SOLUTION (0) Fr = Fsin30°sin50° = 220.6 N (Given) F = ——~—. 220'6‘N = 575.95 N sm30° $111150O F = 576 N 4 (b) 0056’Y = = 220'6 : 0.3830 ' F 575.95 8x = 67.5°4 Fy = Fcos 30° = 498.79 N F cost = "3- : 49??? = 0.86605 ' F 573.93 49}. 2 300° 4 F: : ——Fsin30°cos§0° = —(575.95 N)sin30°cos§0° = —185.107 N c056, = TF4 = = —0.32139 ' F 575.95 t9_,~ = 108.7°4 f w, PROBLEM 2.101 The support assemny shovm is bolted in place at B, C, and D and supports a downward force P at A. Knowing that the forces in members AB, AC, and AD are directed along the respective members and that the force in member AB is 146 N, determine the magnitude of P.
