Unformatted text preview: Answer = 35.42, 485 N ME1300 Statics Tutorial 1 5. Determine the design angle ) 90 ( between struts AB and AC so that the 400N horizontal force has a component of 600N which acts up to the left, in the same direction as from B towards A. Take 30 = . Answer = 38.3 6. The truck is to be towed using two ropes. Determine the magnitude of forces F A and F B acting on each rope in order to develop a resultant force of 950 N directed along the positive x axis. Set 50 = . Answer = 774 N, 346 N C B 400 N A ME1300 Statics Tutorial 1 7. Determine the x and y components of each force acting on the gusset plate of the bridge truss. Show that the resultant force is zero. Answer = 2kN, 0 kN, 3.2 kN, 2.4 kN, 1.8 kN, 2.4 kN, 3 kN, 0 kN...
