Frame/Machines- Statics Question

  1. Oct 14, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A floor jack is used to support a 2000 lbf load. Calculate the pressure exerted on the hydraulic fluid by the piston H if the piston has a diameter of 2 in. SHOW ALL WORK AND FBDs. Note: CDE is a solid, continuous member.
    *I attached the diagram****

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am unsure if there are any 2 force members. I really just need to know where to start because there are a lot of members in this problem. Do i need a FBD for all of them?
