EG1109 STATICS and MECHANICS OF MATERIALS INQUIRY-BASED TUTORIAL NO. 1 1. Construct free body diagram of (a) of the pulley shown in Fig. 1, (b) each cylinder shown in Fig. 2, and (c) each block in Fig. 3, each modelled as a particle. 2. The four-bar mechanism ABCD in Fig. 4 is attached by a spring at its left end to a rigid wall and by a rigid bar at its right end to the right wall. The spring constant k = 10.2 kN / m . Initially, when a = 0, all bars are horizontal and the spring tension is 200 N . The load P is then applied, and the bars open to the position shown. Find the force P required to cause this deformation.
