Ok let's crank it out. P1 is (20)(2.15) = 43 and P2 is (20/2)(2.15) = 21.5, so the vert load is 64.5 N. The moment about the support is 43[(2.15/2) +.1 + 4 sin15] + 21.5[(2.15/3) + .1 + 4 sin15] = 134.9 Nm. Or, if you look at the moment at the support in the free body of the slanted member, it's 64.5(4)(sin15) + 68.1 = 134.9 Nm.....checks out OK.

Using the bending equations, I have a value of approx 88Pa for the induced stresses.
Am I right in using the the biggest moment in the equation, which is at the ground?

Sorry, 44.24MPa

Hi, i am having the same trouble with this assignment, mainly drawing the free body diagram of each section. Not sure exactly whether to draw it as a full frame or two seperate parts.
thanks

Thanks, so for the horizontal piece, when your working out the vertical forces, how do you know whether to use the 20Mn or the 40Mn? and does it only have 2 downward forces due to the billboard and one moment force due to the slanted piece?
Thank you
