Each wire has axial rigidity EA 12.5 10 6/°F. and coefficient of thermal expansion 120 k (a) If a vertical load P 500 lb acts at point D, what are the tensile forces TA and TB in the wires at A and B, respectively? (b) If, while the load P is acting, both wires have their temperatures raised by 180°F, what are the forces TA and TB? (c) What further increase in temperature will cause the wire at B to become slack? (Eq. 9) (Eq. 10) ; 13,953 N 1546 N ...
