Problem 3.42

Solve Prob. 3.41 for the position corresponding to x = 4 in. PROBLEM 3.41 The 20-in. tube AB can slide along a horizontal rod. The ends A and B of the tube are connected by elastic cords to the fixed point C. For the position corresponding to x = 11 in., determine the angle formed by the two cords (a) using Eq. (3.32), (b) applying the law of cosines to triangle ABC.

Step-by-Step Solution:

TROUBLE SHOOTING PROCESS Step 1: Identify the Problem In this first step you already know that there is a problem; now you have to identify exactly what it is. This means gathering information. You do this in a few ways: . Question the user. Ask the person who reported the problem detailed questions about the issue.
