Retro tutorial #4

There’s no better way to consolidate learning in Engineering Mechanics than quietly working through problems using pencil and paper (that’s why we call this a ‘Retro Tutorial’).

Here’s your chance to become good at recognising two-force objects. Then you’ll practise finding centres of gravity for a range of objects - of increasing difficulty. Don’t forget to use the table method.

Expect to spend 40 minutes if you do them all and are methodical in your working.

Download the tutorial in the Downloads section below and work through the questions. It includes solutions. It’s probably best if you try the problem first before looking at the solution.
