The weight of the tree may be resolved into two resultant forces, a force P1 900 lb acting at a point 12 ft from the base and a force P2 100 lb acting at the top of the tree, which is 30 ft long. The diameter at the base of the tree is 14 in. Calculate the maximum tensile and compressive stresses st and sc, respectively, at the base of the tree due to its weight. 45° 200 mm 11.31 * 103 mm2 I st diameter c H (8.0 kN)(1/ 12) sina H d P sin a PLd + 2A 4I N Mc + A I st P2 = 100 lb 30 ft 12 ft P1 = 900 lb 60° ...
