Forces in a Crane Jib Model MT 014

Sci-tech Forces in a Crane Jib Model MT 014 represents a planar central force system in which multiple forces act on a single point of application. Based on the example of a crane jib, forces are determined graphically and experimentally: resultant cable force, tensile force, compressive force. The directions and magnitudes of the forces are determined graphically by way of a force parallelogram.
