Name: Session: 2 A bar AB is supported by a hinge at point A and connected to a cable at point B as shown below. A force P = 140 N is applied at point D that is 300 mm away from point A (see figure). Given that the cross sectional area for the bar AB is 20 mm 2 and that of the cable is 1 mm 2 . Please (a) determine the stress in the cable, and (b) if the change of length in the cable is 0.25 mm, find the strain of the cable.
