Unformatted text preview: 1.4 kg/m . The line will safely support a tension of 5kN . Assume now there is an ice accumulation of 4 kg/m along the cable. 1)[50 points] Determine its tension at the lowest point. 2) [50 points] Determine whether the line with the ice accumulaton is safe. THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics EM 306 STATICS  UNIQUE NUMBER 13560 Spring 2009 QUIZ #10 Name: Date: The stationary balloons tether is horizontal at point O where it is attached to the truck.The mass per unit length of the tether is 0.45 kg/m . The tether exerts a 50 N horizontal force on the truck. The horizontal distance from point O to point A where the tether is attached to the balloon is 20 m . 1)[50 points] What is the height of point A relative to point O ? 2) [50 points] Determine the magnitudes of the horizontal and vertical components of the force exerted on the balloon at A by the tether....
