A compressive load P = 12 kips is applied, as in Fig. 9-8a, at a point 1 in. to the right and 2 in. above the centroid of a rectangular section for which h = 10 in. and b = 6 in. Compute the stress at each corner and the location of the neutral axis. Illustrate the answers with a sketch.
A rectangular waterfront lot has a perimeter of 1000 feet. To create a sense of privacy, the lot owner decides to fence along three sides excluding the sides that fronts the water. An expensive fencing along the lot’s front length costs Php25 per foot, and an inexpensive fencing along two side widths costs only Php5 per foot. The total cost of the fencing along all three sides comes to Php9500. What is the lot’s dimensions?
The tide in Bay of Fundy rises and falls every 13 hours. The depth of the water at a certain point in the bay is modeled by a function d = 5 sin (2π/13)t + 9, where t is time in hours and d is depth in meters. Find the depth at t = 13/4 (high tide) and t = 39/4 (low tide).
The depth of the high tide is 15 meters and the depth of the low tide is 3 meters.
The depth of the high tide is 16 meters and the depth of the low tide is 2 meters.
The depth of the high tide is 14 meters and the depth of the low tide is 4 meters.
The depth of the high tide is 17 meters and the depth of the low tide is 1 meter.
for t days and t = 0 corresponding to January 1. The constant K determines the total variation in day length and depends on the latitude of the locale. When is the day length the longest, assuming that it is NOT a leap year?
The local weather forecaster says “no rain” and his record is 2/3 accuracy of prediction. But the Federal Meteorological Service predicts rain and their record is 3/4. With no other data available, what is the chance of rain?
A spider eats three flies a day. Until he fills his quota, he has an even chance of catching any fly that attempts to pass. A fly is about to make the attempt. What are the chances of survival, given that five flies have already made the attempt today?
