(a) (b) PROBLEM 2.71 A horizontal circular plate is suspended as shown from three wires which are attached to a support at D and form 30° angles with the vertical.
Knowing that the x component of the force exerted by wire AD on the plate is 220.6 N, determine (a) the tension in wire AD, (b) the angles 19x,
By, and 62 that the force exerted at A forms with the coordinate axes. @536“ E vs wine

Knowing that 6x = 28.5°, Fy = —80 N, and F1 > 0, determine (a) the
components Fx and F2, (b) the angles ﬂy and 02. SOLUTION
(a) Have
Fx = Fcosﬂx = (400 N)cos28.5° Fx = 351.5 N 4
Then:
ﬂ=ﬁ+ﬁ+ﬁ
So: (400 N)2 = (352.5 N)2 + (—80 N)2 + F}
Hence:
F2 = + (400 N)2 — (351.5 N)2 — (—80 N)2 Fz = 173.3 N4
