A

### Example Problem

Determine the force in each supporting wire.

TB

TA

TA and TB are the forces inside the cables and equal to reaction forces at A and B.

F

### Example Problem

Set up the following problem: Length A= 5 ft, and length B =10 ft and angle α= 30o. Determine the angle β of the smooth incline in order to maintain equilibrium.

### Example Problem

Use line-of-action to solve the problem

### Class Problem

Set up the problem and how would you solve for the resisting force at pin A to maintain equilibrium.

### Class Problem

Set up the problem and how would you solve for the resisting force at pin A to maintain equilibrium.

### Example - Equilibrium

The tension force in AC is 28 kN, determine the the required values of tension in AB and AD so that the resultant force of the three forces applied at A is vertical. Determine the resultant force.
