Homework Help: Statics help needed!

  1. Mar 16, 2005 #1
    statics help needed...desperately!

    The Frame in the Attached file supports a suspended weight W = 40 lb. Determine the forces on members ABCD and CEG. (image available at my website... http://geocities.com/jessparker502

    I know how to calculate the forces when the wheel isn't present, however the presence of the wheel completely throws me off. At my website I included what I think is the free body diagram for the entire frame. my problem starts at the wheel... I know that i need to do something with the 3 in. radius, however I don't really know what to do from here on out.
