A compressor of weight W is suspended from a sloping ceiling beam by long rods AB and CD of diameters d1 and d2, respectively, as shown in Fig. P2.8-6a. A typical bracket is shown in Fig. P2.8-6b. Using the data given below, determine the allowable compressor weight, Wallow.. (Neglect the weight of the platform between A and C, and neglect the weight of the two rods. Also, assume that rod AB and the pins at A and B are large enough that they do not need to be considered.)
