15-7 Chapter 15: Homework Problems 5.3 Below is a wind turbine with a single blade. There advantages and disadvantages to using a single blade, but initially, we just want to estimate some of the forces. On a given day, we will assume that the thrust force on the blade (Fd is approximately 40 N. For an airfoil, this would be similar to the drag force. The lift force (F2) is then what causes the blade to rotate. In this case, it is approximately 250N. If d[ = 20 m, d2 = 60 m, and d3 = 4.5 m and the forces act in the x - y plane, what is the resultant force on the blade due to the wind? Sketch the vector in the x - y plane and determine the magnitude and the angle it makes with the x axis. z y ~=I x F, d1 15-9 Chapter 15: Homework Problems 5.5 Revisiting the gusset plate problem. Assume that 01 = 50°, O2 = 40°, 03 = 55°, and 04 = 35°. The forces are F1 = lOkip, F2 = 20kip, F3 = 70kip, F4 = 35kip, Fs = 35kip. Determine the resultant force acting on the gusset plate. Calculate its x and y components, its magnitude, and the angle it makes with the x axis.

You may assume that a = 16m, b = 52m, c = 7m, and d = 4m. If the tension in the cable is 7.5 kN, determine its x, y, and z components.

If the magnitude of the force is 708 Ibs., write the vector in the form, FIt. Then find the scalar component of that force in the direction of the position vector, (-2ft., -2ft., 2ft.).
