## Question:

The uniform beam has weight W. Determine the average tension in each of the two cables AB and AC if the beam is given an upward speed v in time t starting from rest. Neglect the mass of the cables. Units Used: kip = ${ 10 }^{ 3 }$ lb Given: W = 5000 lb , g = ${ 32.2ft/s }^{ 2 }$ , v = 8 ft/s , a = 3 ft , t = 1.5 s , b = 4 ft
