Do not change them in any way or you get a 0 (zero) to that question. Show all work. If you make an assumption, state it clearly. Provide units with your answers, and box them. Use the back of the equation sheet as scrap paper if needed. The “lb” unit means “lb—force” in this test, NOT “lb—mass” (i.e. do NOT multiply by gravity to get a force!). Define clearly any new variable you introduce in a problem based on the givens. Pb. I (40 pts) , The truss below is symmetric about the line KM. Please answer the following questions: 1. 3. Find the angles a and [5 (Hint: CF intersects the line KM in its middle) Find the force in member KI using the method of joints. Specify if that member is in tension or compression. Find the force in member CF using the method of sections (gin; cut horizontally through EC, CF and FD). Clearly draw the FBD of the piece of truss you will apply equilibrium to.

Find angle B (Hi__n_'t. consider the 2 right angle triangles whose hypotenuses are AI and AF, and use the fact that AI/AF= 0.4) as well as the horizontal distance between A and C. 4.

    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.
