Problem 2.4-10 A rigid bar of weight W 5 800 N hangs from three equally spaced vertical wires, two of steel and one of aluminum (see figure). The wires also support a load P acting at the midpoint of the bar. The diameter of the steel wires is 2 mm, and the diameter of the aluminum wire is 4 mm. What load P allow can be supported if the allowable stress in the steel wires is 220 MPa and in the aluminum wire is 80 MPa? (Assume E s 5 210 GPa and E a 5 70 GPa.)
