Problem 9.3a : 2-member truss

  • Force P = 500 N
  • Angle = 60o
  • a = 3 m
  • b = 2 m
  • c = 1.5 m
  • d = 0.5 m

Solve for the support forces and point A and B and the forces in the members AC and BC using the method of joints. Also, indicate the type of force ( C = compression , T = tension , 0 = zero-force ) for each member force.

My solution
