## ENGINEERING MECHANICS

Statics assignment 2 Source: Statics and Structures text book Loo, Y.C. and Guan, H., Statics and Structures, School of Engineering, Griffith University Gold Coast Campus, 3rd Edition, 2013 Instruction: Aim: Statics assignments assess the ability of the students to apply theory to problems and their understanding of the concepts. Through these assignments, students’ problem solving skills and computational skills will be developed. Submission: All statics assignments must be submitted on or before the due dates. Late submission penalties will apply based on the QIBT policy. Submission should be handwritten hardcopy with an attached assignment cover sheet. Submit your statics assignments to your lecturer in class. Criteria & Marking: Students must show their calculations for each question. If no calculation is attached, no mark will be given. Mark will be awarded according to the correctness of the final answer, the accuracy of the solution and the clarity of the presentation. Please note that answers to all questions should be done individually. REMEMBER TO INDICATE THE UNITS AND DIRECTION OF ALL VECTORS Analysis of trusses 1) For each of the statically determine trusses detailed in following figures, preform a complete analysis of the member forces. Tabulate your results. (a) (b) 2) For each of the trusses illustrated in following figures, determine the axial forces in the members identified as a, b and c. (a) (b) Foces and Momenets in Space 3) A lamp post is under action of three concentrated loads, parallel respectively to the x, y and z axes. Compute the reactions at the built-in support at the base. Dimensions are in millimeters. 4) Following figure shows a 3D cantilever system which is hinged at the root (A) and supported by a prop (BC) on one side and a cable (DE) on the other side of the beam (ACD). For the uniformly distributed load of 2.5 kN/m, compute the reactions at A and the axial forces in the prop and the cable. Hint: Determine axial forces in the prop and the cable first, followed by reactions at A. Use ratios of length formulas.

## TWO TIER WAGES

Unit IV Case Study Read “Your Turn: Two-tier Wages” on pp. 242-243 and compose a paper using your responses to the questions following the Case Study on p. 243. Your paper should consist of at least two pages, and all citations and references should be in APA format. Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment is provided below.

## US ENTRY INTO FOREIGN WARS

US entry into foreign wars Examining US entry into foreign wars in 1898 and again in 1917, what factors do you find were most important in making those decisions?In terms of motivations and causes, what did the two decisions to shift from neutrality (or at least not direct military involvement) to intervention have in common and how did they differ? Essay Guidelines – It should be at least 4 pages long – Make sure you use the sources used in class! – Make references – Have a strong thesis statement – If you use sources outside of the assigned readings, make sure they are academic, and use appropriate citation style -Chicago should be good – Your introduction and “thesis statement” might be the last thing you write in an essay. Oftentimes it is difficult to tell how exactly to formulate a claim until a good amount of the essay’s body has been written. Sources: – George F.

## RELIOUS ATROCITIES

Please describe how “identity constrains choice” in respect to atrocities committed by individuals (in a group context) in situations of identity-based ethno-national, -religious, or -linguistic conflict. How does this argument of Kreidie & Munroe (K&M) contrast with Stewart & Brown’s explanation of violent conflict?In your opinion, which group of authors’ perspective is more valid: K&M or S&B? Why? Please provide one real-world example to support your answer. ***Your real-world example(s) may NOT include ISIL, Al-Qaeda, Boko-Haram, Taliban or Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990). These specific examples indeed are relevant, but all too familiar and I want you to expand your knowledge by researching/referencing more obscure real-world incidents of violent conflict.

## HISTORY

2. The Declaration of Independence asserts, “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such a government and to provide new guards for their future security.” Trace out the radicalization of American politics from 1763-1776. How did colonists move from the relatively conservative reaction to the Stamp Tax in 1764 to the extreme positions taken in Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and the Declaration of Independence in 1776?In your answer make sure that you explain how and why the policies, events, and political ideas of these years brought thirteen diverse colonies together in a common cause against England.

## MANAGEMENT

Please DO NOT answer question 1 and 2 together. Please answer the questions separately. Thank you very much Question 1—MGMT600—-Discuss what area(s) and/or topic(s) was most valuable to you in the overall course and in the preparation of the Diagnostic Analysis associated with your business model canvas. Also discuss where you need more preparation in order to be (more) effective in understanding diagnostic analysis and/or consulting.Question 2—-HRMT600—-Final Thoughts: After all you have learned from the textbook, research you have conducted, and discussions with fellow students; please discuss the main functions of HRM and what you feel is the most important issue facing HR Managers, employees, and Organizations today.

## BARRIERS TO NURSE PRACTITIONERS PRACTICING

Policy change paper In this assignment, you will assess the problem, develop solutions, analyze those solutions, decide on the best one, and make a case for why it should be adopted. These things will be presented in an 8-10 page paper that is due at the end of Week Seven. In addition, during Week Seven, you will make a 10 minute professional, persuasive presentation, that will be posted to VoiceThread, as if you were speaking to a legislative committee on health care.

## CONDITIONS WHICH ARE INFLUENCED BY DISPARITIES

eight common conditions which are influenced by disparities: Cancer Cardiovascular Disease Chronic Kidney Disease Diabetes HIV/AIDS Mental Health and Substance Abuse Musculoskeletal Diseases Respiratory Diseases Select one of these diagnoses and describe the problems associated with its care. Discuss the findings in the AHRQ report and how this influences the outcomes for an individual patient or family. Look at your state health department website and see if you can identify any specific programs which exist to help with this diagnosis and how closely it may match the AHRQ report.
