  1. Jun 4, 2009 #1
    Hey everyone! I have the following question:
    http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/2382/question1a.jpg [Broken]
    Where load P = 50kN.

    I need to find the Tension in the tie rod, (1).

    I am unsure how to tackle this problem.

    Any help would be great!

    You'll get many more responses in the Homework forum. Showing a decent college try would help as well.
