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.

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.)
