The two uniform 4-kg bars DC and EF are fixed (welded) together at E. Determine the normal force NE, shear force VE, and moment ME, which DC exerts on EF at E if at the instant u = 60 BC has an angular velocity v = 2 rad>s and an angular acceleration a = 4 rad>s 2 as shown

Introduction (Part 1) What is mechanics The science that describes and predicts the conditions of rest or motion of bodies under the action of forces. What happens to this body o Does it move (Dynamic) o Does it stay still (Static) o Does it deform/ deflect Mechanics is Comprised of Multiple Topics Rigid bodies o Statics o Dynamics Deformable bodies o Mechanics of materials Fluids o Incompressible o Compressible We Will Focus on Rigid Bodies Statics deals with bodies at rest. Dynamics deals with bodies in motion. Mechanics is the Foundation for Mechanical Engineering. Introduction (Part 2) Fundamental Concepts and Pri
