3.9 A winch puller AB is used to

straighten a fence post.

Knowing that the tension in

cable BC is 1040 N and length

d is 1.90 m, determine the

moment about D of the force

exerted by the cable at C by

resolving that force into

horizontal and vertical

components applied (a) at Point

C, (b) at Point E.

SOLUTION

NOTE: When we use M = Fd to calculate moment, both F and d are the magnitudes

and hence are always POSITIVE. However, if we use M = xPy yPx to calculate the

moment, x, y, Px and Py are components, and therefore may be positive or negative.

3.73 Four 1-in.-diameter pegs are attached to a board as shown. Two strings are passed

around the pegs and pulled with forces indicated. (a) Determine the resultant couple

acting on the board. (b) If only one striing is used, around which pegs should

F1 it pass

and in what direction should it be pulled to create the same couple with minimum

tension in the string? (c) What is the value of that minimum tension?

SOLUTION

(a) There are two couples in the problem. Use the 2D equation, we have

M = F1d1 + F2d2 = (35 lb)(7 in.) + (25 lb)(9 in.) = 470 lb∙in.

M = 470 lb∙in.◄

Note: we can also use the vector equation to solve the problem.

M = M1 + M2 = rD/B × F1 + rD/C × F2

= (−7 in.)j × (35 lb )i + (9 in.)i × (25 lb )j = 470k (lb∙in.)

470 lb∙in., either pegs A and D, or B and C should be A

used to minimize the tension when the distance is d

maximized. Also, when the direction of the force is F

perpendicular to the center line AD or BC, the

−F D

perpendicular distance d between the two forces are

maximized (see figure).

(b) The distance between the centers of the two pegs is (8 in.) 2

(6 in.) 2 10 in.

Therefore,

F = 42.7 lb◄

with a single equivalent couple, specifying
