● Plagiarism will be assigned zero points to all involved. No replacement/alternate
assignments will be made available.
● Draw sketches where necessary.
● Show working of the problems for full credit. Just giving correct answer without showing
the work get only half credit for that question
● Correct choice of formulae, accurate calculations, appropriate units, well drawn sketches,
showing the work and clearly identifying your answers gets full credit for a question.
● All questions are worth equal points.

Q. 3 For the crankshaft, connecting rod and piston shown, determine the distance the piston
travels as the position of the crankshaft given by the angle θ moves from θ 35o to θ = 90o
Q.4 The 14 inch square concrete column shown in the following figure is hoisted using a
chain that is 80 in. long. If the lifting hook is placed at the midpoint, B, of the section ABC of
this chain, find the angle formed at B between the sides Ab and BC.
Q. 5 Solve the system of equations shown below using Cramer’s rule using any of the
numerical methods discussed in class. (You may cross-check your results using scientific
calculator if you like to do so.)
