# Computer Problem using Matlab

**Question description**

The derrick shown supports a 2000-kg crate. It is held by a ball-andsocket

joint at A and by two cables attached at D and E. Knowing that the

derrick stands in a vertical plane forming an angle f with the xy plane,

write a computer program that can be used to calculate the tension in each

cable for values of f from 0 to 60° using 5° increments. Using appropriate

smaller increments, determine the value of f for which the tension in cable

BE is maximum.
