Links (1) and (2) support rigid bar ABCD shown in below. Link (1) is bronze (E = 15, 200 ksi] with a cross-sectional area A_1 = 0.50 in.^2 and a length L_1 = 24 in. Link (2) is cold-rolled steel [E = 30,000 ksi] with a cross-sectional area A_2 = 0.375 in.^2 and a length L_2 = 32 in. Use dimensions of a = 14 in., b = 16 in., and c = 18 in. For an applied load of P = 9 kips, determine (a) the normal stresses in links (1) and (2). (b) the deflection of end D of the rigid bar
