(a) F tee-Body Diagram: (06 = 90°) The bracket is a three-force body and A is the intersection of the lines of action of the three forces. 0 = tan—1(3) = 26565" 12 From the force triangle: A = (75 lb)cot6 = (751b)cot26.565° 9 =150.0001b A 9 ' C = 7.5 1b = A = 167.705 lb sm6 sm26.565° ‘ 7C”; or A = 150.0 lb 1 4 or ‘C = 167.71b Li 63.4° 4 PROBLEM 4.67 CONTINUED (beree-Body Diagram: (a = 45°) I 16M. Let E be the intersection of the lines of action of the three forces acting on the bracket. Triangle ABE is isosceles and therefore AE = AB = 16 in. km From triangle CEF e = tan—(E) = tan—1(3) = 12.0948° EF 28 From force triangle: ,6 = 180° —135° — 9 9 = 180° — 135° — 12.0948° = 32.905° A _C_ Using the law of sines: ) A _ C = 75 1b 13:0 a sin32.905° sinl35° si1112.0948° 7: 1k Solving for A and C: A = 194.452 1b C = 253.10 1b o'r A =194.51bl 4 or C = 2531b :5 779° 4 o PROBLEM 4.78 A small hoist is mounted on the back of a pickup truck and is used to lift a 260-lb crate. Determine (a) the force exerted on the hoist by the hydraulic cylinder BC, (b) the reaction at A. SOLUTION Free-Body Diagram: (for hoist AD) Note that the hoist AD is a three-force body. E is the intersection between the lines of action of the three forces acting on the hoist. From the free-body diagram: xAE = (48 in.)cos30° = 415692 in. yAD = (48 in.)sin30° = 24 in. yBE = xAD tan75° = (41.5692 in.)tan75° = 155.1384 in. Then: a = m_, yBE — 16 in. = tan_1(139.1384) 41.5692 = 73.36588° [3 = 75° — a = 75° — 73.36588° = 1.63412° 6 = 180° — 15° — [3 = 165° — 1.63412° =163.366° From the force triangle and using the law of sines: 2601b _ B _ A sinfl sin6 sin15° 2601b B A ’ sin 1.63412° sin 163.366° sin 15° Solving for A and B: (a) B = 2609.9 lb or B = 2.61kips 3 750° 4 (b) A = 2359.8 lb or A = 2.36 kips ‘Q 734° 4 PROBLEM 4.92 A slender rod of length L is lodged between peg C and the vertical wall. It supports a load P at end A. Neglecting friction and the weight of the rod, determine the angle 9 corresponding to equilibrium. SOLUTION q. Free-Body Diagram: Note that the rod is a three—force body. In the free-body diagram, D is the intersection between the lines of action of the three forces. Using triangle BCE: a = BE = BC sin9 and from tn'angle BCD BC = BDsin9 Then a = BDsin29 Also from tfiangle ABD BD = Lsin9, so a = Lsin3 9 ...
