Homework Help: Can you explain this cross cut

  1. Dec 1, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I don't understand the cuts or the views. For example if we make a horisontal cut, which view we should show?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have in the book an example that if we make a vertical cut we show the upper view (view seen from upside down.

    The arrows on the cut line show the direction the section view is show from. We choose the arrow direction so the section view shows the information we need it to.

    So I have to draw a section, right? Could you tell me what its shape will be or how should I draw it? In my book there is no information about this. Or could you send me a link that gives more information?
