A member of parliament (MP) is the representative of the people who live in their constituency. In many countries with bicameral parliaments, this category includes specifically members of the lower house, as upper houses often have a different title. Member of Congress or Deputy is an equivalent term in other jurisdictions. Another term is Parliamentarian.
Members of parliament seem to tend to form parliamentary groups (also called parliamentary parties) with members of the same political party.

Hi guys, this is an exercise I have been tasked to solve for an assignment. First of explaining you what I have done to solve it using the shear equation, in order to find the maximum shear stress and the shear flow in the juncture, one big question:

Hello!
I am new to mechanics of materials and I am very confused about the problem below. So the shear formula is:
tau = VQ/It
From the book (Hibbeler) I understand that Q is "y'A', where A' is the cross-sectional area of the segment that is connected to the beam at the juncture where the...

Since the question only asked for one member, I was trying to solve it using method of section. I cut in the middle of BD. I was unable to solve it because it has 4 unknown. Then I looked at the solution, it say that CD is zero force member. I don’t understand why CD is zero force member. Could...
This truss is supposed to have 4 zero force members and i have picked the following. Does it look right?
Left side: Join has 2 members of which the colinear are the 2 vertical members and so the horizontal must be 0
Right side: Join has 2 members with no external load, therefore both are 0
I am...

The Attempt at a Solution
binomial (10,4) = binomial (10,6) = 210
But when choosing 5 the answer is binomial (10,5) / 2 = 126

Find x and y if x, y are members of real numbers and: (x+i)(3-iy)=1+13i
I first expanded it to give: 3x-yix+3i+y=1+13i
Then I equaled 3x+y=1 and -yx+3=13
But afterwards I do other steps and get the wrong answer.
My professor explained to us that the purpose of a zero-force member in a truss is to increase the stability of the truss during construction, to provide added support if the loading is changed and to prevent the structure from becoming a mechanism.

Is this correct? The sum of the forces in the Y have to be zero and there is only two y-components so it's pretty simple to determine this. There are also only two x-components so those will also cancel each other out as they have to go in opposite directions to balance as...

The question tells us that a tensile force of 80kN acts upon the thin rod and hence we know there will be an equal but opposite force on the other side. However, I don't understand why there are compressive forces on the tube? We aren't told about this in the question.
