Question: 2 when a hydraulicallyoperated digger is removing earth as shown...

Question details

2. When a hydraulically-operated digger is removing earth, as shown below, the horizontal force on the bucket is 25 kN. Assuming equilibrium (negligible acceleration), calculate the force in each of the three hydraulic rams (at A, B and C). o.s 19 25 KN Hints: The forces exerted by the hydraulic rams must be oriented along the axis of the ram (like the reaction force of a rope). Consider each of the following free body diagrams in turn, starting with the bucket. ans.: FA- 42.7 kN (comp.) FB 82.5 kN (comp.); Fc -26.5 kN (tension)]
