Question details

Sec. 3.2 Free-Body Diagrams in the Equilibrium of a Rigid Body 115 3.2 Free-Body Diagrams in the Equilibrium of a Rigid Body Problem 3.2-1 Draw the free-body diagram of the S0-kg uniform pipe, which is supported by the smooth contacts at A and B. 10° Solution 1. Imagine the pipe to be separated or detached from the system 2. The supports at A and B are smooth contacts Use Table 2.1 (0) to determine the number and types of reactions acting on the pipe at A and B. A. The pipe is subjected to three external forces (dont forget the weight!). They are caused by 4 Draw the free-body diagram of the (detached) pipe showing all these forces labeled with their magnitudes and directions Assume the sense of the vectors representing the reactions acting on the pipe (the correct sense will always emerge from the equilibrium equations for the pipe). Include any other relevant information eg lengths, angles etc. which may help when formulating the equilibrium equations (including the moment equation) for the pipe
