Question: the beam abc has a mass of 790 kg and...

Question details

The beam ABC has a mass of 79.0 kg and is supported by the rope BDC that runs through the frictionless pulley at D. The winch at C has a mass of 41.0 kg. The tension in the rope acts on the beam at points B and C and counteracts the moments due to the beams weight (acting vertically at the midpoint of its length) and the weight of the winch (acting vertically at point C) such that the resultant moment about point A is equal to zero. Assume that rope segment CD is vertical and note that rope segment BD is not necessarily perpendicular to the beam a.) Compute the tension in the rope. b.) Model the two forces the rope exerts on the beam as a single equivalent force and couple moment acting at point B. Enter your answer in Cartesian components. c.) Model the two forces the rope exerts on the beam as a single equivalent force (no couple) and determine the distance from A to the point along the beam where the equivalent force acts (measured parallel to the beam from A). Enter your answer in Cartesian components. frietionless winch 2013 Michael Swanbom Values for dimensions on the figure are given in the following table. Note the figure may not be to scale.
