A circular cross section solid steel shaft 3" in diameter and 4 feet long is fixed at one end and free at the other. As shown in the figure below, the shaft is subjected to an axial tensile load of 50,000 lbs. If the force P = 390 lbs, what is the combined stress at point A and point B. Indicate whether they are compressive or tensile.

Flow and Momentum

A hot gas stream enters a uniform diameter return bend as shown. The entrance velocity is 100 f/s, the gas density is .02lbm/cubic ft. and the mass flow rate is 1 lbm/cubic ft. The gas is cooled before exiting the bend and exits the bend at a density of .06 lbm/cubic ft. The pressures at the entrance and exit of the bend are equal and are equal to atmospheric pressure. Find the force required to hold the bend.
