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. 2. Show all work. 3. If you make an assumption, state it clearly. 4. Provide units with your answers, and box them. 5. Use the back of the equation sheet as scrap paper if needed. 6. The “1b” unit means “lbforce” in this test, NOT “lb—mass” (i.e. do NOT multiply by gravity to get a
force!). 7. 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
you arrive at the right answer in some dﬁerent manner. Pb. I (50 pts) — The bar ABC, with right angle at B, weighs 30 N with center of gravity at G. It is
supported by a pin at A, a roller at C, and a cable at B, as shown in the picture below.
1. Draw a FBD of ABC 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?
3. Apply equilibrium to ABC and solve for the reaction forces at A and C.
4. Could you solve the problem if A was ﬁxed instead of pinned? Justify your answer in a couple
of sentences. No math is needed to answer this question. +3 ZMA = K

_AB at the angle 9 = arc tan (4/3). We want to determine the compr ssion force F in the strut (ONLY). 1. Draw a FBD of the door only. Treat the hinges Agnd B’a ball—and—socket joints that are
negligibly small and act at the extreme ends of the lower edge (line CD). For the door, which
way is F oriented, up towards B or down towards A? Assume the center of gravity G of the door
is its geometrical center (uniform mass). 2. Express F fully in terms of its components along the x, y, z axes as deﬁned in the picture.
Calculate the moment of F at C, using vectors and cross—products, in terms of the unknown
magnitude. 4. Do you need the 2 F = 0 equation to solve for the unknown force in this problem?
Apply equilibrium and solve for the force in AB. 5” £11 y <1 CON/0) ...
