Problem 2.4-4 A bar ACB having two different cross-sectional areas A 1 and A 2 is held between rigid supports at A and B (see figure). A load P acts at point C , which is distance b 1 from end A and distance b 2 from end B . (a) Obtain formulas for the reactions R A and R B at supports A and B , respectively, due to the load P . (b) Obtain a formula for the displacement d C of point C . (c) What is the ratio of the stress s 1 in region AC to the stress s 2 in region CB ?
