Unformatted text preview: 1. The bars remain joined at joints A, B and C 2. Point A will only move vertically, point B will not move, and point C will move toward B and away from A 3. The relative displacement of two joints connected by a bar is defined by extensional and rotational components consistent with the bars remaining connected at the joints 4. The bars will remain straight 5. We can represent the bar extensions as displacement vectors acting along the direction of the bars and calculate the joint displacements by vector addition 6. Some other answer 7. I don't know/don't understand. 200 N 10 m 5 m A B C...
