PROBLEM 3.8

It is known that a vertical force of 200 lh is required to remove the nail at C from the board. As the nail first starts moving, determine (a) the moment about B of the force exerted on the nail, (b) the magnitude of the force P that creates the same moment about B if a == 100 , (c) the smallest force P that creates the same moment about B.

SOLUTION

(a)

We have

MB =rC/BFN

== (4 in.)(200 lb) == 800 lb in.

or MB = 800 lb . in. ) ...

(b) By definition MB=1:4/BPsinB

B == 100 + (1800 -70°) =120°

Then

800 lb· in. == (18 in.) X Psin 120°

or P = 51.3 lb ...

(c)

For P to be minimum, it must be perpendicular to the line joining Points A and B. Thus, P must be directed as shown.

Thus M B == dPmin

d = rAIB

or 800 lb . in. == (18 in,)Pmin

Pmin = 44.4 Ib

PROBLEM 3.47

The 0.61x1.00-m lid ABeD of a storage bin is hinged along side AB and is held open by looping cord DEC over a frictionless hook at E. If the tension in the cord is 66 N, determine the moment about each of the coordinate axes of the force exerted by the cord at D.

SOLUTION

First note

z = ~(0.61)2 - (0.11)2 = 0.60 m

Then

dDE = ~(O.3i +(0.6)2 + (-0.6i = 0.9m

and

TDE = 66 N (0.3i + 0.6j - 0.6k) 0.9

PROBLEM 3.69

In Problem 3.62, determine the perpendicular distance between cable EG and the line joining Points A and D.

PROBLEM 3.62 A sign erected on uneven ground is guyed by cables EF and EG. If the force exerted by cable EG at E is 54 lb, determine the moment of that force about the line joining Points A and D.

SOLUTION

From the solution to Problem 3.62

TEG = 54lb

TEG =6[(llb)i-(81b)j-(41b)k]

1M AD I = 2350 lb· in.

Based on the discussion of Section 3.ll,~ follows that only the perpendicular component of TEG will contribute to the moment of T EG about line AD.

Now

(TEG )parallel = TEG . ')... AD

;;=6(i-8j-4k)· ~(4i-j+3k) -../26

6

= r,:;-;- [(1)(4) + (-8)(-1) + (-4)(3)] = 0

v26

Thus,

(TEG)perpendicular = TEG = 54 lb

Since A, AD and (TEG )perpendicular are perpendicular, it follows that

or

2350 lb in. = dx54lb

or d = 43.5 in .....
