Mechanics Homework 34-4 353 - Equilibrium of Non-Concurrent Force System Name_______________

Problem 34-4 The forces acting on a 1-m length of a dam are shown in Fig. P-353. The upward ground reaction varies uniformly from an intensity of p 1 kN/m to p 2 kN/m at B. Determine p1 and p2 and also the horizontal resistance to sliding.
