ME1300 – Statics Tutorial 3 1. The device shown is used to straighten the frames of wrecked autos. Determine the tension of each segment of the chain, i.e., AB and BC, if the force which the hydraulic cylinder DB exerts on point B is 3.50 kN, as shown. Answer = 2.99 kN, 3.78 kN 2. The unstretched length of spring AB is 2 m. If the block is held in the equilibrium position shown, determine the mass of the block at D. Answer =12.8 kg

Unformatted text preview: Answer =78.7, 255 N 4. Determine the maximum weight W of the block that can be suspended in the position shown if each cord can support a maximum tension of 80 N. Also, what is the angle for equilibrium? Answer = 60, 46.2 N ME1300 – Statics Tutorial 3 5. The three cables are used to support the 800-N lamp. Determine the force developed in each cable for equilibrium. Answer = 1.2 kN, 0.4 kN, 0.8 kN 6. Determine the stretch in each of the two springs required to hold the 20-kg crate in the equilibrium position shown. Each spring has an unstretched length of 2 m and a stiffness of k = 300 N/m. Answer = 327mm, 218 mm...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
