The Crane in P19 (Attached) supports a 20.0-kN load.. to simplify things take the bales to be represented by two separate bundles: Cable-AB and cable-BC. (a) Draw a free-body diagram of point-B putting in the forces exerted by the boom, cable-AB, and cable -BC. (b) determin the horizontal and the vertical components of each force. (c) Using Sigma(Fx) = 0 and Sigma(Fy) = 0, determine the compressive force on the boom.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Since Fy, and Fx = 0, The load must be in Equilibrium.

I'm kind of stuck on this question, I had skipped over it before but now I still want to figure it out.

Any help would be much appreciated!
