## 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!
