Procedure for drawing a free-body diagram Procedure for drawing a free-body diagram 1) 1) Draw an outline showing the particle in question Draw an outline showing the particle in question isolated from its surroundings isolated from its surroundings 1) 1) Show all the active and reactive forces using arrows Show all the active and reactive forces using arrows 1) 1) Identify all known forces by labeling their Identify all known forces by labeling their magnitudes and directions. magnitudes and directions. 1) 1) Identify all unknown forces using letters Identify all unknown forces using letters FBD - EXAMPLE FBD - EXAMPLE k = 500 lb/ft EXAMPLE 1 EXAMPLE 1 100 lb Determine the force developed in each of the three cables to support the 100 lb crate. 4 f t 3 8 ft 100 lb F 1 F 2 F 3 B C D FBD SOLUTION 1 SOLUTION 1 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 k j i u 8k 4j 3i u 8k 4j 3i k 8 j 4 i 3 r AB AB AB 848 . 424 . 318 . 8 4 3 ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 2 2 +--= +-+-+--= +--=-+--+--= The coordinates of Points A, B and C are: A (0,0,0); B (-3,-4,8); C (-3,4,8) 4 f t 3 8 ft 100 lb F 1 F 2 F 3 B C D Given the above coordinates, the position vector r AB and the unit vector u AB can be written as: k j i u F AB 2 2 2 2 2 848 . 424 . 318 .
