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.
