A load of 5 kN is suspended by ropes as shown in Fig. 4.14 (a) and (b). In both the cases, the cross-sectional area of the ropes is 200 mm2 and the value of E is 1.0 GPa. In (a) the rope ABC is continuous over a smooth pulley, from which the load is suspended. In (b) the ropes AB and CB are separate ropes joined to a block, from which the load is suspended in such a way, that both the ropes are stretched by the same amount. Determine, for both the cases, stresses in the ropes and the deflections of the pulley and the block due to the load.
