First Semester GE 131 — ENGINEERING MECHANICS sCommon to all branches except Marine Engineering) ‘Time : Three hours ‘Maximum : 100 marks a Answer ALL questions. PART A — (10 = 2 = 20 marks) Distinguish between units and dimensions. Give an example. ‘A force of magnitude 50 kN is acting along the line joining A(2, 0, 6)m and B(3, ~2. Ohm. Write the vector form of the force. ‘Two forces of magnitude 50 KN and 80 kN are acting on a particle, such that the angle between the two is 135°, If both the forces are acting away from the particle, calculate the resultant and find its direction. Draw neat sketches and mark reaction at supports : (a) Simply supported beam AB of span L.
