Mission F2D4: Static Equilibrium Analysis


Mission F2D4 focuses on the use of vector components to mathematically analyze situations in which objects hang at equilibrium from two or more wires, cables, or strings. The mission consists of 40 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to physically analyze situations in which a weight is supported by two or more cables which extend at angles to the horizontal.
  • The student should be able to perform calculations to mathematically relate the tension in a sign-supporting cable to the angle with the horizontal and the mass of the sign.
