How do you find the Magnitude of the Force in the arm of a crane?
Aside from the pure Mathematics of engineering, Statics is one of the most important concepts we must master when it comes to taking the FE Exam. Working problems from a mathematical basis is one thing, throwing these same concepts in to a theoretical real life form, welp that’s another.
But it shouldn’t trip you up, in this video, we get down with another FE Exam Practice Problem, this time in the subject of STATICS, specifically revolving around the MAGNITUDE OF A FORCE.
What is STATICS?
STATICS is an area of engineering mechanics that studies the EFFECTS and DISTRIBUTION of FORCES on objects which are at and remain at rest.
These forces are assumed and assessed as if no deformation of the object occurs, or in other words, the body is rigid.
Dynamics, on the other hand, deals with objects that do not remain at rest, while Mechanics of Materials takes cues from each of these subjects, dealing with objects that deform under loads and forces.
Finding the MAGNITUDE OF A FORCE is FUNDAMENTAL to the problems you will be dealing with on the FE EXAM, so let’s get that skill dialed for you.
Check out the video and see how we can go about solving this type of problem in the most efficient manner.
