Free Body Diagram - shelf

  1. May 3, 2005 #1
    Hello all,

    Can anyone provide the magnitude of the forces required to maintain a balanced condition within my attached free body diagram?

    I need to build a weldment and attach it to a wall. The weldment has a horizontal component that will carry a 750 pound vertical load placed 13 1/2" from the vertical component. I am uncertain if the length of the weldment's vertical component has a significant effect on the horizontal force required to hold my system to the wall ... used to be able to calculate this but now find myself second-guessing.

    See attached .PDF diagram.

    Thank you
