1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Trying to calculate the support reactions here. 2. Relevant equations ƩFy = 0 ƩMA = 0 3. The attempt at a solution Well I've come up with the first equation (I assume two are needed to solve for both support reactions from the above equations). ƩFy = 0 RA + RB (up) = 10kN + 10kN + 4(10kN) (down) RA + RB = 60kN Not too sure how to go about calculating the sum of the moments in this case. But here's an attempt, I may be completely wrong! But then again that's why I'm here. ƩMA = 0 Taking moments about A in a positive clockwise direction: (4+2+2)(10kN) + (4+2)(10kN) (clockwise+) = 4(10kN)(4 + 4/2) + 4RB (counter clockwise-) (8)(10kN) + (6)(10kN) - 4(10kN)(4 + 4/2) - 4RB = 0 4/2 is the centroid of the uniformly distributed load 10kN Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all.
