## Problem 328 | Equilibrium of Force System

**Problem 328**

Two weightless bars pinned together as shown in Fig. P-328 support a load of 35 kN. Determine the forces P and F acting respectively along bars AB and AC that maintain equilibrium of pin A.

## Problem 327 | Equilibrium of Force System

**Problem 327**

Forces P and F acting along the bars shown in Fig. P-327 maintain equilibrium of pin A. Determine the values of P and F.

## Problem 309 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

**Problem 309**

A cylinder weighing 400 lb is held against a smooth incline by means of the weightless rod AB in Fig. P-309. Determine the forces P and N exerted on the cylinder by the rod and the incline.

## Problem 308 | Equilibrium of Concurrent Force System

**Problem 308**

The cable and boom shown in Fig. P-308 support a load of 600 lb. Determine the tensile force T in the cable and the compressive for C in the boom.
