**Problem 254**

As shown in Fig. P-254, a rigid bar with negligible mass is pinned at O and attached to two vertical rods. Assuming that the rods were initially stress-free, what maximum load P can be applied without exceeding stresses of 150 MPa in the steel rod and 70 MPa in the bronze rod.

## Solution to Problem 242 Statically Indeterminate

**Problem 242**

The assembly in Fig. P-242 consists of a light rigid bar AB, pinned at O, that is attached to the steel and aluminum rods. In the position shown, bar AB is horizontal and there is a gap, Δ = 5 mm, between the lower end of the steel rod and its pin support at C. Compute the stress in the aluminum rod when the lower end of the steel rod is attached to its support.

**Problem 216**

As shown in Fig. P-216, two aluminum rods AB and BC, hinged to rigid supports, are pinned together at B to carry a vertical load P = 6000 lb. If each rod has a cross-sectional area of 0.60 in.^{2} and E = 10 × 10^{6} psi, compute the elongation of each rod and the horizontal and vertical displacements of point B.

## Solution to Problem 118 Shear Stress

**Problem 118**

A 200-mm-diameter pulley is prevented from rotating relative to 60-mm-diameter shaft by a 70-mm-long key, as shown in Fig. P-118. If a torque T = 2.2 kN·m is applied to the shaft, determine the width b if the allowable shearing stress in the key is 60 MPa.
