EM 306 – Statics TEST 3 Fall 2018 - Landis Name and EID ___________________________________ Unique # ___________________________________ All problems require correctly drawn and labeled free body diagrams for each component that you perform an equilibrium analysis on . Problem 1. Gravity acts along the negative z -direction. The weight of the angle bar is W , and acts at the point (2´,0,0). The support at B does not restrict any rotations, and does not restrict translation along its axis (i.e. the y -direction). (a) Identify the equations required to solve for the tension in the string and all of the reactions at A and B . (b) The algebra for solving for all of these forces is not difficult, but

Unformatted text preview: you only need to solve for the tension in the string . (30 points) Problem 2. With your solution for the tension in the string from Problem 1, determine the vector amount of this force that is along the line AD and the vector amount that is perpendicular to the line AD . (10 points) EM 306 – Statics TEST 3 Fall 2018 - Landis Problem 3. Gravity acts downward. The coefficients of friction between the blocks, and between the lower block and the ground are both μ = 0.2 . Determine the value for the force P when the blocks begin to move. Note that the side support for the 50 lb block will only act on one side or the other, not both. (20 points)...

    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.
