Unformatted text preview: N. The supports D and
E lie in th e x -y p lane, the bar lies in the x-z
plane, and BC is parallel to the x axis.
(a) (3 marks) Write the forces in BE and CD as
vector components. Note that FCD will be a
function of L.
(b) (9 marks) The distance L of point D from
the y axis is variable, but there is only one
position for which the bar will be in
equilibrium in the position shown. Determine
the value of L.
