Name: ________________ 10–01–2014 ME2560. STATICS – TEST No. 1 1. A force FB = 600 N is acting at point A as shown. Determine the magnitude of the components of this force along and perpendicular to an axis formed by points B and C. Also find the angle between force FB and segment BC. (35 pts.) ME2560 Statics. 1st Test 1 10–01–2014 2. The bucket hanging from point D creates a 30 lb tension in cable DB. Determine the weight of the bucket and the tension in the other two cables. Start your analysis presenting a FBD at the appropriate location. Solutions without FBD will be graded as zero. (35 pts.) ME2560 Statics. 1st Test 2 10–01–2014 ME2560 Statics. 1st Test 3 10–01–2014 3. The crate has a mass of 350 kg and is subjected to a towing force P acting at a 20° angle with the horizontal. If the coefficient of static friction is µs = 0.5, determine the magnitude of P to just start the crate moving down the plane. (30 pts.) ME2560 Statics. 1st Test 4
