G EORGIA I NSTITUTE OF T ECHNOLOGY School of Aerospace Engineering COE 2001 D QUIZ #1 Craig (closed book exam) Su05 1. Two cables AC and BC are tied together at C and are loaded as shown. Answer the following questions as separate problems (i.e., one does not depend on the other). a. Determine the range of values for load, Q, for which the tension in either cable will not exceed 60N b. Is there a maximum value of Q for this problem? Hint: the cables cannot support compression. 2. The figure below shows a force and couple system with magnitudes as shown.

Unformatted text preview: Note that the magnitude of C 2 and the direction of the component forces is given. Note also that the force and couple magnitudes are assigned values that make the computation simpler. a. Determine an equipollent system consisting of a single force and couple through the point A (2,0,0). b. Can your system be further reduced to a single force or a single couple or a wrench?
