Unformatted text preview: be subtracted if your line of thought cannot be derived from your answer. Question 1) Rod AB of length “l” and negligible weight lies in a vertical plane and is pinned to blocks A and B. The weight of each block is W, and the blocks are connected by an elastic cord which passes over a pulley at C. Neglecting friction between the blocks and the guides, determine the value of ! as a function of the tension in the cord, T (known). . Question 2) Knowing that w=300 N/m, determine a) The resultant concentrated load on the beam and its location. b) The smallest distance a for which the vertical reaction at support B is 2.5 times that at A....
