# Force in each member of truss

1. Mar 2, 2008

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Determine the force in each member of the truss shown.

2. Relevant equations
$$\Sigma$$Fx = 0
$$\Sigma$$Fy = 0
$$\Sigma$$M = 0

3. The attempt at a solution
I divided up the truss into different systems, the whole truss, and then a system for each pin. I must be doing something wrong because I found that FAP = 0 and FA = 0

As far as the free body diagram, I wasn't sure about the force on the rollers, I just had a single horizontal force pointing inward for each and a force in the x and y directions for the pin at point B. Can someone give some direction?
Thanks
