(a) Once we impose the boundary conditions, we have the “global” system, Equation (1).
What size is the global mass matrix for this problem?
(i) 8&times;8
(ii) 4&times;4
(iii) 2&times;2
(iv) Other (specify)
(b) Find the global mass matrix. Set up all integrals as completely as possible, but do not
integrate.

Problem 2 (30 points): Consider two physical systems, as shown in the diagram below.
System I is a static stress analysis problem with the bar fixed to the wall and a pressure load
at the tip. System II is a steady heat transfer problem with a zero temperature at one end
and a distributed heat flux at the tip.

Because of symmetry, we can model the top half of each of the systems with four-node
isoparametric elements, as shown below.
