Remove Spike from Timber It is desired to remove the spike from the timber by applying force along its horizontal axis. An obstruction A prevents direct access, so that two forces, one is 1.6kN and the other P, are applied by cables as shown. Compute the magnitude of P necessary to ensure axial tension T along the spike. Also find T.
