ME1300 – Statics Tutorial 1 3. Determine the angle θ for connecting member A to the plate so that the resultant force of F A and F B is directed horizontally to the right. Also, what is the magnitude of the resultant force. Answer = 54.9, 10.4 kN 4. The 500-N force acting on the frame is to be resolved into two components acting along the axis of the struts AB and AC. If the component of force along AC is required to be 300 N, directed from A to C, determine the magnitude of force acting along AB and the angle of the 500-N force.

Determine the design angle ) 90 ( between struts AB and AC so that the 400-N horizontal force has a component of 600-N 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...
