Fig. P638. The beam
has a uniform cross
section and a mass of
20 kg. Determine the
reaction at support A
and the tension T in
the cable. SOLUTION The action of the pin at support A
is represented by force components — Ax and Ay. The cable is continuous over the pulley; therefore, the
force in the cable is constant. At
points B and C the cable exerts
tensile forces T on the beam that
are tangent to the cable. The
weight w of the beam acts through
the center of gravity G of the
beam and is directed toward the

STURGES The wrecker truck of Fig. P6—63 has a weight of 15,000 lb and a center of gravity at G. The force exerted on the rear (drive) wheels by the ground consists of both a normal component By and a, tangential component Bx while the force exerted on the front wheel
consists of a normal force Ay only. Determine the maximum pull P
the wrecker can exert when 6 : 300 if Bx cannot exceed 0.8By (because of friction considerations) and the wrecker does not tip over backwards (the front wheels remain in contact with the ground).
