I am studying for the FE exam and came to this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A circular rod of 1in. cross-section area is subjected to several forces. Determine the displacement relative to C (in the attachment). Assume E =29x10^6 psi.

my solution is:

del=1/29x10^6(F_{a-b}(10in)/1in+F_{c-b}(8in)/1in)

yet I don't know how to get the right forces F_{a-b}and F_{c-b}
