Given: A ramp which is sitting as illustrated below. The ramp weighs 200 lb. http://img165.imageshack.us/img165/8601/problem523fe4.th.png [Broken] Find 1: Cable force (line CD) so that the reaction at point B=0. Find 2: Determine the Horizontal and vertical components of pin hinge at point A Solution: I know that all the forces lie in the y-direction. I believe I have found the usual tension in tha cable to be 173.2 lb. I know that all the forces will be in the y-direction. How do I set up the equation? (Answer from text book: F(CD) = 195 lb.) Solution 2: done. A(x) = 97.5 lb. A(y) = 33.4 lb.
