The drawing below shows two pipes lying on top of eachother. Forces act on the different contact points, and I am to determine these as a result of the pipes' weight G. I'm able to do this graphically, but not by calculation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Next up is a similar problem, I'm to determine the forces at A and B, where B is a roller. Here I'm able to do it analytically, but not graphically.

If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it
