Hey guys, help me out a bit here. I want to form 2d static equilibrium equations for a shopping cart. This is for an assignment. I'm kind of confused about the support reactions. I'm not sure how I should analyze the basket. I was going with A as a fixed support (see image) since I'm guessing the weight fw and load fl will create moments there but I don't know if that makes sense since the whole thing seems like a fixed frame but I'm not sure if I should analyze it as a frame. I know for sure D and E would be have one reaction force each as they are roller supports. Also I don't know if a force should be acting from C to A. I would really appreciate some help here because there is just a lot I don't understand about these topics.
