Problem 2-106

Express the force F in Cartesian vector form if it acts at the midpoint B of the rod.

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

The magnitude of the force is .

In order to determine the Cartesian vector form of force F, we need to calculate position vectors of point B and D.

The position vector of point B is,

....(1)

The position vector of point D is,

....(2)
