Statics question

  1. Jul 14, 2009 #1
    So i'm totally stumped on how to start this problem. Anyone want to give me some clues.

    Thanks,



    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find V,F, & M at points P and Q. Show direction. Answer: 13.3, 750, 1000, 290, 877, 700


    2. Relevant equations

    This is problem #3 on the attached document.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Hello, Skycart. The PF rules state we are not allowed to tell you how to approach or solve your homework problem. You must list relevant equations yourself, and show your work; and then someone might check your math.

    skycart as nvn said list the equations and you will get yourself started. Also could you please explain M,F, and V

    V, F, and M would be internal shear force, axial force, and moment.

    Ahh yes how could I forget V as shear force. Ok thanks.

    Thanks for the info about posting on the forum. I didn't list equations because there are not really any conventional equations like in physics. About the only thing to do is sum the x and y forces and then sum the moments. V stands for shear force. M stands for moment. F stands for axial force. Thanks for the replies!

    These are equations no?

    Now how would you go about getting reasonable equations for that section?
