Problem 4-57

The A-36 steel wires AB and AD each have a diameter of 2 mm and the unloaded lengths of each wire are LAC = 1.60 m and LAB = LAD = 2.00 m. Determine the required diameter of wire AC so that each wire is subjected to the same force when the 150-kg mass is suspended from the ring at A.

Problem 4-57

The A-36 steel wires AB and AD each have a diameter of 2 mm and the unloaded lengths of each wire are LAC = 1.60 m and LAB = LAD = 2.00 m. Determine the required diameter of wire AC so that each wire is subjected to the same force when the 150-kg mass is suspended from the ring at A.

Step by step solution

Step 1 of 3

Take the equilibrium equation around the y axis we get:

...(1)

However since the condition given for this problem is:

Then (1) becomes:
