Knowing that = 25, determine the tension (a) in cable AC, (b) in rope BC.
Free-Body Diagram Force Triangle
Law of Sines: TAC T 5 kN = BC = sin115 sin 5 sin 60 (a) TAC = TBC = 5 kN sin115 = 5.23 kN sin 60 5 kN sin 5 = 0.503 kN
Two forces are applied to an eye bolt fastened to a beam. Determine graphically the magnitude and direction of their resultant using (a) the parallelogram law, (b) the triangle rule.
