In Prob. 3.57, determine the perpendicular distance between rod AB and the line of action of P. PROBLEM 3.57 The 23-in. vertical rod CD is welded to the midpoint C of the 50-in. rod AB. Determine the moment about AB of the 235-lb force P.
Fluid Statics 1 Matter = Solid and fluids Fluids = Liquids and gases Characteristics Solid Fluid Shape Definite Takes the shape of container Behavior under Offer permanent resistanceOffers no permanent applied load Deforms but deformation resistance disappears when load is removed 2 Liquid Gas Incompressible [density constant]: Compressible [density changes]: Given mass of liquid will occupy a fixed volume. Given mass of gas has no fi
