2. Draw a complete and separate FBD showing the particle and all the forces acting on it. (5
points)
3. Write the equilibrium equations (8 points)
4. Determine the vertical force P exerted by the balloon. (3 point)
5. Determine the magnitude of the force in the cables AB and AD (6 points)

Problem #3 (25 %)
The beam fixed in the wall is subjected to forces T and F in addition to the weight W. Assume
that the beam is weightless. The forces T and F are given in the figure.
(1) Calculate the moment of T about O. (4)
(2) Calculate the moment of F about O. (4)
(3) Calculate the moment of G about O. (4)
(4) Replace T, F, and G by an equivalent resultant force R at point O and a couple C.
Express R and C in Cartesian vector form. (9)
(5) Calculate the scalar component of the moment of T about zaxis (note that zaxis follows
the righthand rule). (4)
I mportant: mark the senses of 2D moment and couple in your result.
