- Homework Statement:
- As shown in the figure, we are given a static structure with articulated supports A and B. C is a point articulated too. We are asked to find the reaction forces and moments in A and B.

- Relevant Equations:
- ##F_r = ma##, ##M_r = I\alpha##

First, since A and B are articulated, the moments due to A and B are zero. Now, we may call reaction forces in A, ##V_A## and ##H_A## and in the same way, call the reactions in B as ##V_B## and ##H_B##. With that and Newton's third law, I managed to find three equations (equilibrium of translation in the vertical and in the horizontal plus the rotation equilibrium), but, still, I need one more equation or argument to completely find the four forces.
