    FBDs and Tension

    Hah that makes things easy. I guess I was thinking back to statics where if I was assuming a member to be in tension, but my answer came out negative then I had assumed wrong and it was in compression. Thanks alot.

    FBDs and Tension

    Homework Statement While working through problems I always have trouble determining the direction that tension acts in on objects in the system. In system B.) block A has a velocity of 4m/s to the right, with mu(k)=0.2, causing the mass B to fall, in class tension was assumed to be in the...

    Statics hw problem

    You can solve this using either the Relative Motion Method for mechanism analysis, or Instantaneous Centers of Rotation. I`m guessing you havent covered either of these in your course, I did a quick search and found this book if you want to read up on it...

    Help On Moments

    If you want me to go through the whole problem let me know.. But the problem with your solution is with Force B. Under your moment column for this force you have 5.65 x 0 = 0. This is incorrect. The VERTICAL moment of force B IS ZERO! Since the hozitonal distance from Fb to the pivot is...

    Fluid mechanics involving stability

    i have a quick question about stability..sorry if im hijacking the thread.. If you are determining wether something will be stable or not, is it only dependant on wether the metacenter is above the center of gravity?

    Yeah, with 1st derivative test right? I just figured that it would be ok to assume a maximum because thats what the question asked for, and solving for r only gave me one value.

    Thanks for the help. One thing I don't understand though.. I rearrange V = LWH to solve for H. That gives me H = V/LW. Now when I take the derivate implicitly, wouldnt I need to use the quotient rule to get the derivative of V/LW? That is how I got LW(dv/dt) and not the correct answer of...

    Statics - Method of Members

    That cleared things up alot thanks.. So member BC is the 2 force member because it only has the forces B and C acting on it? Member BC is in tension so it can only pull on the pins at B and C? Is this correct? Because of this, when I draw the FBD of member BC the reactions are only in the...
