Problem 1:

## The toggle switch consists of a cocking lever that is pinned to

a fixed frame at A and held in place by the spring which has
an unstretched length of 200 mm. Determine the magnitude of
the resultant force at A and the normal force on the peg at B
when the lever is in the position shown.

Strategy:
Apply the rule of cosines to find the stretched length of the
spring and find the spring force. Draw the free body diagram
and calculate the moment about point A to get the normal force on the peg. Apply the
equilibrium equation to find the reaction forces at A.

at one end A by a smooth wall and the other end by a cord of
length s which is attached to the wall as shown. Show that for

Problem 3:

## The uniform load has a mass of 600 kg and is lifted

using a 30-kg strongback beam and four wire ropes
as shown. Determine the tension in each segment
of the rope and the force that must be applied to the
sling at A.

Strategy:
Due to symmetry, all wires are subjected to the same tension. This condition satisfies moment
equilibrium about x and y axis and force equilibrium along y axis.
Apply the force equilibrium along z axis to find the tension in the wires and the force at point
A.
