1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 100-kg uniform rectangular plate is supported in the position shown by hinges A and B and by cable DCE that passes over a frictionless hook at C. Assuming that the tension is the same in both parts of the cable, determine (a) the tension in the cable, (b) the reactions at A and B. (assume that the hinge at B does not exert any axial thrust) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution What does it mean when it says assume that the hinge at B does not exert any axial trust? Everyone keeps telling me that it means that there's no reactions, yet in the free body diagram, I see reaction forces, just no reaction moments, is this what it means?
