The operation of the fuel pump for an automobile depends on the reciprocating action of the rocker arm ABC, which is pinned at B and is spring loaded at A and D. When the smooth cam C is in the position shown, determine the horizontal and vertical components of force at the pin and the force along the spring DF for equilibrium. The vertical force acting on the rocker arm at A is FA = 60 N, and at C it is FC = 125 N. 50 mm FA 60 N 10 mm C D B A F E 20 mm FC 125 N 30 Prob. 531
