Using trigonometry \and knowing that the magnitude of P is 600 N, determine (a) the required ' angle a if the resultant R of the two forces applied to the support is to be vertical, (b) the corresponding magnitude of R.

Knowing that both members are in compression and that the force is ' 30 kN in member A and 20 kN in member B, determine, using trigonometry, the magnitude and direction of the resultant of the forces applied to the bracket by members A and B. Using the force triangle and the Laws of Cosines and Sines We have: 7 = 180° — (45° + 25°) = 110° Then: R2 = (30 ka + (20 IN)2 ~2(30 kN)(20 kN)cosllO° = 1710.42 sz .

The “' pulley is held in the position shown by a second cable CAD, which paSSes over the pulley A and supports a load P. Knowing that P = 800 N, detemtine (a) the tension in cable ACB, (b) the magnitude of load Q. SOLUTION . Free-Body Diagram: Pulley C .
