Mechanics Homework 12-2 347 - Equilibrium of Non-Concurrent Force System Name_______________ Mr. Haynes Date_______________

Problem 12-2 A boom AB is supported in by a hinge A and a cable which runs from C over a small pulley at D as shown in Fig. P-346. Compute the tension T in the cable and the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at A if the cable pulls the boom AB into a position at which it is inclined at 30° above the horizontal. The loads remain vertical. Neglect the size of the pulley at D.

$$T = 216.51 \, \text{ lb}$$

$$A_H = 108.25 \, \text{ lb}$$

$$A_V = 112.50 \, \text{ lb}$$
