I am building a wall that weighs 3230 pounds. It is being supported at two points on the extreme top and bottom of the wall. As I jack the wall up on one side, to lift it into position, I am assuming I am now lifting 1615 lbs because the house is holding the other side of the wall. As I lift the wall to 10 degrees above the horizontal I am trying to determine the forces acting on the jack end and the house end of the wall. I have no problems using right triangle trig to solve this vector problem but I need help with some basic info about how to do it.

If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

Sincerely,
