Unformatted text preview: PROBLEM 10.2 Determine the vertical force P which must be applied at G to maintain the equilibrium of the linkage. SOLUTION Link ABC Assume clockwise Then for point C xC = ( 5 ) in. Link DEFG and for point D xD = xC = ( 5 ) in. And for link DEFG xD = 15 5 = 15 or Then Now = 1 3 4 G = 4 2 = 2 in. 3 yG = G cos 45 4 = 2 cos 45 3 4 = in. 3 Then, by Virtual Work. U = 0: (80 lb in.) - ( 40 lb ) xE ( in.) + P yG ( in.) = 0 10 4 80 - 40 + P = 0 3 3 or P = 40 lb ...
