##### Rigid bar ABC shown in Figure P1.30 is supported by a pin at bracket A and by tie rod (1).

Rigid bar ABC shown in Figure P1.30 is supported by a pin at bracket A and by tie rod (1). Tie rod (1) has a diameter of 5 mm, and it is supported by double-shear pin connections at B and D. The pin at bracket A is a single-shear connection. All pins are 7 mm in diameter. Assume a = 600 mm, b = 300 mm, h = 450 mm, P = 900 N, and θ = 55°. Determine the following:

(a) the normal stress in rod (1)

(b) the shear stress in pin B

(c) the shear stress in pin A

##### The jet transport B is flying north with a velocity

The jet transport $$B$$ is flying north with a velocity $$v_{\mathrm{B}}=600 \mathrm{~km} / \mathrm{h}$$ when a smaller aircraft $$A$$ passes underneath the transport headed in the $$60^{\circ}$$ direction shown. To passengers in $$B$$, however, $$A$$ appears to be flying sideways and moving east. Determine the actual velocity of $$A$$ and the velocity which $$A$$ appears to have relative to $$B$$.

##### Archimedes measured the weight of the crown in air to be 11.8 N and its weight in water to be 10.9 N. Was it pure gold?

It is said that Archimedes discovered the buoyancy laws when asked by King Hiero of Syracuse to determine whether his new crown was pure gold (SG = 19.3). Archimedes measured the weight of the crown in air to be 11.8 N and its weight in water to be 10.9 N. Was it pure gold?
