EG1109 Statics and Mechanics of Materials Quiz 1 (2007/08 Semester 1) Question 1 (a) The bent bar ABC in Figure Q1 may be considered as a three-force member. Give a brief explanation why this statement is correct. (b) Making use of the fact that ABC is a three-force member, determine the magnitudes of the reactions at A and D . For simplicity, assume g = 10 m/s 2 . (10 marks) Member BD is a 2-force member. The three forces acting on member ABC are (1) the support reaction at A, A F , (2) the axial force due to member BD,
