ENGINEER 2P04  ENGINEERING MECHANICS "A" PRACTICE PROBLEM SET: 7 This problem set contains 10 problems. Please solve them prior to the tutorial time. Only the problems indicated with * will be discussed during the tutorial time. Solutions to this problem set will be posted at the Course Website. 1. The rectangular crosssectional links BC and DE are both made of steel (E=200GPa), and are 12mm wide and 6mm thick. If a 10kN force P is applied to the rigid member AF shown in Figure: 1, determine (a) the force in link BC, and the force in link DE (b) Determine the reactions at support F. (c) Determine the deflection of Point A. 2.* The steel rods BE and CD each have a 16mm diameter (Take E st =200GPa.). The ends of the rod are single threaded with a pitch of 2.5mm. Knowing that after being snugly fitted, the nut at C is tightened one full turn, determine (a) the stress in rod CD, (b) the stress in rod BE, and (c) the deflection of point C of...
