Inclined bar reaction

  1. Apr 24, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    We have a straight bar of specific length that its edges are secured between two walls. However the bar is not parallel to the ground, but has an angle. My question is, what is the force that pushes each of the two fixed points in the walls, down?

    2. Relevant equations
    ΣF=0

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think that the load to the fixture points will be parallel to the weight of the bar acting at its middle point. And the forces will be equal. Is that true?
