The division line does not have to be linear but has to pass through the members where the solution of the forces is desired. Determine the forces in members BC, GC and GF EXAMPLE 1 SOLUTION 1 Use the method of sections through a-a to pass members BC, GC and GF : SOLUTION 1 ∑ F Y = 0; F GC sin 45 o – 1000 = 0, F GC = 1414 N (T) ∑ M G = 0; 1000(2) – F BC (2) = 0, F BC = 1000 N (T) on) (compressi N 2000 F F cos45 F F ; F GF GF GC BC X = =-+ = ∑ o EXAMPLE 2 Determine the forces in member EB of the roof truss. SOLUTION 2 ∑ M B = 0; 1000(4) + 3000(2) – 4000(4) + F ED Sin30°(4) = 0 F ED = 3000 N (C) SOLUTION 2 -continued ∑ F X = 0; F EF Cos30° - 3000Cos30° = 0; F = 3000 N (C) EXAMPLE 3...
