## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

Im trying to find the method for working out the support reaction loads on a beam at given angle.

example: a 6m beam with a point load 600kg or UDl of 100kg/m perpendicular to the beam. Suspended at each end by a chain hoist, "a" and "b". "b" is 2m higher than "a". I belive using angle is the key but I can't find many examples I understand to check my results against.

Thanks

James
