Unformatted text preview: 5. Replace the cut members with forces; assume the members are in tension , and that they are 2-force members (forces only applied at the ends of the members). 6. Remember to include any applied forces/moments or reaction forces/moments for the remaining section. 7. Apply the equilibrium equations to solve for the unknown forces, = x F = y F = P M Note: take the moment about the point with the most unknown forces (or line of action of the unknown forces) passing through it. This will minimize the number of unknown forces in the moment equation....
