Mechanics Homework 9-2 255 - Equivalent loads to a compression member with eccentric load Name_______________
Mr. HaynesDate_______________

Problem 9-2 A short compression member carries an eccentric load P = 200 lb situated 2 in. from the axis of the member, as shown in Fig. P-225. In strength of materials it is learned that the internal stresses are determined from the equivalent axial load and couple into which P may be resolved. Determine the equivalent axial load and couple.
