116 CHAPTER 2 Axially Loaded Members Problem 2.5-15 Wires B and C are attached to a support at the left-hand end and to a pin-supported rigid bar at the right-hand end (see figure). Each wire has cross-sectional area A 0.03 in. 2 and modulus of elasticity E 30 10 6 psi. When the bar is in a vertical position, the length of each wire is L 80 in. However, before being attached to the bar, the length of wire B was 79.98 in. and of wire C was 79.95 in. Find the tensile forces T B and T C in the wires under the action of a force P 700 lb acting at the upper end of the bar.
