Mechanics Homework 27-2 1033 - Truss with zero force members Name_______________ Mr. Haynes Date_______________

Problem 27-2 Given the truss and loading shown, identify any zero-force members, and then determine the forces in members $$CB$$, $$CF$$, $$CD$$, and $$CG$$. Use a symmetry argument to determine the forces in the remaining members. Indicate tension or compression.

$$CB = 212 ~ \text{N (C)}$$
$$CF = 100 (T)$$
$$CD = 262 ~ \text{N (C)}$$
$$CG = 158 ~ \text{N (T)}$$
