Q1. The bar in Figure 1 has a constant width of 35 mm and a thickness of 10 mm. Determine
the maximum average normal stress in the bar when it is subjected to the loading shown.

Figure 1

Q2. The 80 kg lamp is supported by two rods AB and BC as shown in Figure 2. If AB has a
diameter of 10 mm and BC has a diameter of 8 mm, determine the average normal stress
in each rod.

Q3. Determine the average shear stress in the 20 mm diameter pin at A and the 30 mm
diameter pin at B that support the beam in Figure 3.

Q4. The inclined member in Figure 4 is subjected to a compressive force of 3000 N.
Determine the average compressive stress along the smooth areas of contact defined by
AB and BC, and the average shear stress along the horizontal plane defined by DB.

Q5. The control arm is subjected to the loading shown in Figure 5. Determine to the nearest 5
mm the required diameter of the steel pin at C if the allowable shear stress for the steel is
55 MPa.
