Relevant equations sigma Fx=0 sigma Fy=0 3. The attempt at a solution Starting freebody from point B T=tension, C=compression TBC = cos36.86deg = 3250N cos22.62deg TBC = 81.39N CBE = 81.39sin36.86deg + 3250sin22.62deg CBE = 1.3KN Now using Freebody at point C TDCcos45deg = 81.39cos36.86deg TDC=92.09N M=92.09sin45deg + 81.39sin36.86deg M=113.94N [FINAL ANSWER] am i doing this correctly? did i make a mistake anywhere? I have a test tomorrow i need to know if i am missing some fundamental knowledge. thank you for taking the time to help me.
