Mr. Handy made an appearance in last year’s homework, as no doubt most of you know. a) Determine the tension in cable AC as a function of α if R of the three forces at C acts purely along boom BC. Let α range from 60 degrees 110 degrees as drawn. For the purposes of this problem, you can assume that the section of cable AC always makes a 60 degree angle to the vertical as drawn. b) Determine R as a function of α . c) Let W = 100 lbs. Plot your results of parts a and b using excel, Matlab, or similar program. W 35° 30lbs 50lbs 60° α B C A...
