PROBLEM 10.104 A vertical bar AD is attached to two springs of constant k and is in equilibrium in the position shown. Determine the range of values of the magnitude P of two equal and opposite vertical forces P and P for which the equilibrium position is stable if ( a ) , A BC D = ( b ) 2 . A D = SOLUTION For both ( a ) and ( b ): Since P and P are vertical, they form a couple of moment sin θ =+ P MP l The forces F and F exerted by springs must, therefore, also form a couple, with moment
