# Question: each of the four vertical links has an 8 ...

###### Question details

Each of the four vertical links has an 8 × 36-mm uniform
rectangular cross section, and each of the four pins has a 16-mm
diameter. Take *P* = 23 kN.

Determine the maximum value of the average normal stress in the
links connecting points *B* and *D*. (Round the final
answer to one decimal place.)

The maximum value of the average normal stress in the links
connecting points *B* and *D* is MPa.

**P = 23 kN in this problem.**

Determine the maximum value of the average normal stress in the
links connecting points *C* and *E*. (Round the final
answer to one decimal place. Input the answer with the appropriate
sign.)

The maximum value of the average normal stress in the links
connecting points *C* and *E* is MPa.
