Unformatted text preview: 1A. Work this problem on this piece of paper. In each of the following parts you are to use only a straight edge and work the problem graphically. You do not need to make measurements. Your answer will be a vector drawn on this page. (a) Add these vectors (b) Subtract A from B> B <, (c) A+B = R> Find B (d) Find two vectors that lie along the dashed lines that are exactly equivalent to the vector A t\.O N  orl:.. <:"~...v\'" <t",,::.I•••• \ . . . . . , • • • • • ~ \~CA""~lI. \co L..~ .lLCt,v~J'",\t.;,r..;\ ~ ') ~)" \r........ \:\.L ~.~VOL 1'N'7Jv:. \v..).{ ~ J" (tl..\.~·..r, ~ t ' C 01'f1 boo ~ .. \i\r a l1 i 2 vC'cfor$ f" a ) \A..lLtt'/iI.

A student of mechanics wishes to weigh himself but he only has access to a scale A with capacity limited to 100 Ib and a small 20lb spring dynamometer B. With the rig shown he discovers that when he exerts a pull on the rope so that B registers 19 Ib, the scale A reads 67 lb. What is his correct weight? NO' / 3. Using two ropes and a roller chute, two workers are unloading a 200kg cast iron counterweight from a truck. At the instant shown, the counterweight is not moving. The positions of the points are Y A(O, .5, 1) m 8(.6, .8, 0) m C( .7, .9,0) m z Assume there is no friction between the counterweight and the chute. Determine the force in the two ropes in each of the ropes....
