Unformatted text preview: COE 2001 — Test 1 — Spring 2007 Name: m PLEASE NOTE: 1. If axes are speciﬁed for a given problem, you are to use them. Do not change them in any way or you get a 0 (zero) to that question. Show all work. If you make an assumption, state it clearly. Provide units with your answers, and box them. Use the back of the equation sheet as scrap paper if needed. The “lb” unit means “lb-force” in this test, NOT “lb-mass” (i.e. do NOT multiply by gravity to get a force!). Deﬁne clearly any new variable you introduce in a problem based on the givens. 8. For the second problem, you are to use vectors to solve it, i.e. write forces and moment arms as vectors and calculate moments using cross products. Failure to comply will result in a O to the question even it vou arrive at the right answer in some difﬁerent manner. 95"??? .“ Pb. I (50 pts) #» The uniform plate ABCD has a mass of 30 kgs with center of gravity at G. It is supported by a pin at A, a roller at C, and a cable at B that goes through 2 pulleys F and H, as shown in the picture below. The weight W supported by pulley H is unknown. The reaction force at the roller C has a magnitude of 20 N and is oriented up on the plate (from the incline). The system is in equilibrium. 1. Draw a FBD of ABCD alone. What angle does the reaction force at the roller make with the vertical (y axis)? 2. Draw a FBD for each pulley, and apply equilibrium based on the axes given. What is the tension in the cable at B, in terms of the unknown W? 3. Apply equilibrium to ABCD. Solve for W, and the reaction forces at A. 4. Could you solve the problem if C was pinned to the incline, instead of supported by a roller? J ustify your answer in a couple of sentences. No math is needed to answer this question. / ) N" 13 20 M (ON éngmM /[g‘ W2C519618) ;' l2. 2261M! Pb 11 (50 pts) — The uniform panel door weighs 60 lbs and is prevented from opening by strut C, which is a light 2 force member whose upper end (point D) is secured under the door knob and whose lower end (E) rests on the smooth floor (no friction). The door hinges A and B are to be treated as ball-and-socket joints of negligibly small size. We want to determine the compression force F in the strut (ONLY). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5 Draw of FBD of the strut DE ONLY. Which way is F oriented? Draw a FBD of the door only. For the door, which way is F oriented, up towards D or down towards E? Assume the center of gravity G of the door is its geometrical center (uniform mass). Express F fully in terms of its components along the x, y, z axes as deﬁned in the picture. Do you need the )2 F = 0 equation to solve for the unknown force F in this problem? Apply equilibrium and solve for the force in the strut. MOWQ£ QEVCX— __3 I; =FBKF A :+FCL_’/[:,'Aiw F ’53 ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
