(20 points) A steel bar AD (see Fig. 1) has a cross-sectional area of 0.40 in. 2 and is loaded by forces P 1 = 2700 lb, P 2 = 1800 lb, and P 3 = 1300 lb. The lengths of the segments of the bar are: a = 60 in., b = 24 in., and c = 36 in. a. Assuming that the modulus of elasticity E = 30 x 10 6 psi, calculate the change in length of the bar. Does the bar elongate or shorten? b. By what amount P should the load P 3 be increased so that the bar does not change in length when the three loads are applied? Fig. 1
