### Equilibrium of a Rigid BodyExamples

Example Problem

Draw the free-body diagram of the plate.

Example Problem

You have to consider one reaction force from the gusset plate. The components of this force are Rx and Ry.

Rx

Ry

Example Problem

Determine the force in each supporting wire.

TB

TA

TA and TB are the forces inside the cables and equal to reaction forces at A and B.

W=50lb

Example Problem

Set up the following problem: Length A= 5 ft, and length B =10 ft and angle α= 30o. Determine the angle β of the smooth incline in order to maintain equilibrium.

Example Problem

Use line-of-action to solve the problem

Class Problem

Set up the problem and how would you solve for the resisting force at pin A to maintain equilibrium.

Class Problem

Set up the problem and how would you solve for the resisting force at pin A to maintain equilibrium.

Example - Equilibrium

The tension force in AC is 28 kN, determine the the required values of tension in AB and AD so that the resultant force of the three forces applied at A is vertical. Determine the resultant force.

Example-Equilibrium

The vector AB is

Example-Equilibrium

The vector AD is

Example-Equilibrium

The vector AC is

Example-Equilibrium

Plug into (1), solve for magnitude of TAD

Example-Equilibrium

Use the values to solve for RA
