A pulley 4 ft in diameter and supporting a load 200 lb is mounted at B on a horizontal beam as shown in Fig. P-352. The beam is supported by a hinge at A and rollers at C. Neglecting the weight of the beam, determine the reactions at A and C.
The two 12-ft beams shown in Fig. 3-16 are to be moved horizontally with respect to each other and load P shifted to a new position on CD so that all three reactions are equal. How far apart will R2 and R3 then be? How far will P be from D?
The upper beam in Fig. P-337 is supported at D and a roller at C which separates the upper and lower beams. Determine the values of the reactions at A, B, C, and D. Neglect the weight of the beams.
