Unformatted text preview: the li nkage shown in the sketch,
member ABC is vertical and link FD is
horizontal. All joints are pinned, and B and G
are attached to frictionless slides. There is no
connection between the two members at
point F. A force P is applied to point A and a
couple MIN to poi nt I.
(a) (4 marks) Draw free-body diagrams of all
parts of this linkage. Identify all two-force
(b) (10 marks) If the horizontal force P = 2
kN, determine all forces on member DCE.
Hint: note that it is only necessary to analyze
members ABC and DCE. 4....
