A force F = 6.61×104 N and a couple moment M = 3.41×104 N·m are applied to the steel frame as shown. Assume L1 = 1.19 m, L2 = 3.59 m. The angle of the cable BC is indicated by the small triangle. What is the tension in the cable?

    I can't tell what the moment is doing - is it trying to bend the beam down or pushing it to the left? :P

    that's what I'm trying to figure out :/ I was thinking along the top beam, so the moment is equal to 3L1 cross Ty, but I'm pretty sure that wrong

    look if you take the ref. point as the hinged point A, it will be benificial as the torque due to hinge forces will be seen as zero

    \[M=-\sqrt{L_1^2+L_2^2} \times F +\sqrt{L_1^2+L_2^2} \times T_y\] this is not at all correct even a little - these darn engineering problems....

    there should be a Tx in there too, but I don't know how to isolate variables then....

    \[T _{y} = \frac{ F \times L_{1} + M }{ \sqrt{L_{1}^2 + L_{1}^2 } }\] that gets you the vertical component of the tension. \[T = T_{y}*\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }\] so your answer would be 37267 N

    Sorry I messed it up \[T = \frac{ F*L_1+M }{ L_1*(4/5) + L_2*(3/5) }\] That will get you the tension resulting in T = 36303 N I just tested this solution and it worked!

    @rajat97 You must be doing something wrong because 377.55 N is too small. You should be getting something in the thousands

    Alright so the key point is choosing a pivot point in the whole frame and sticking to it, It doesn't matter where the pivot point is but you always make sure that it minimizes the unknowns. |dw:1383969861855:dw| There are 3 unknowns T, Ax and Ay. So I chose the pivot to be at A. The couple moment can be moved around and what really matters when we talk about a force is the effective distance so the following drawing will simplify it. (Note in the drawing I flipped Ty and Tx and I dont know how to edit drawings on this website) |dw:1383970015750:dw| So sum of the moments about the pivot = 0 \[0 = -M -F_1*L_1+T_x*L_2 +T_y*L_1\] Also note that \[T_x = T*\frac{ 3 }{ 5 }\] while \[T_x = T*\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }\] So in that equation now all you have to do is solve for T
