Short AnswerWhat is the difference between a solid structure, frame structure, and shell structure?Using houses as an example, explain why houses have a variety of different roofs since they all do thesame thing.With your knowledge of center of gravity explain what happens when the center of gravity of a buildingor any other structure is too much to one side.What is the difference between internal and external forces?What effects do magnitude, direction and location have on a structure? Be sure to explain each.
