A boom AB is supported in a horizontal position by a hinge A and a cable which runs from C over a small pulley at D as shown in Fig. P-346. Compute the tension T in the cable and the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at A. Neglect the size of the pulley at D.
Two weightless bars pinned together as shown in Fig. P-328 support a load of 35 kN.
Forces P and F acting along the bars shown in Fig. P-327 maintain equilibrium of pin A. Determine the values of P and F.
The system of knotted cords shown in Fig. P-317 support the indicated weights. Compute the tensile force in each cord.
