Homework Statement
This is mostly a statics problem but I'm sure this forum can help me out. Mostly all in the picture. I am trying to find the force in the x direction at point B resulting from loads P1 and P2 at point A. Point A is at the center of the cross bar so therefore it is at equal distance of the legs attached to the hinges. Additionally, both legs are of the same length,z.
Homework Equations
ƩFx = 0
ƩFy = 0
ƩFz = 0
ƩMa = 0
The Attempt at a Solution
I know a moment will be created at point A and also at the other hinge. I just want to know the resultant force in the x direction at one of the hinges which will be equal to the force in the other direction.
Any help?
Thanks in advance!
