1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Calculate the magnitude of the force supported by the point at A under the action of the 2.5-kN load applied to the bracket. Neglect friction in the slot. AB = .17 m B to force = .16 m angle between vertical and BtoForce = 24 3. The attempt at a solution I found the x and y distance of the force from B y = .16 cos 24 = .1462 x = .16 sin 24 = .0651 I tried multiplying the force by the y distance but it was incorrect. I also found the distance from A to the force which is: √((.17 + .0651)2 + (.1462)2) = .2768 and multiplied that by the force but that was also incorrect. Any ideas? Any help appreciated!
