## Homework Statement

The horizontal member ABC of the rig shown below weighs 1000 lbs and is supported by a pin B and cable EADC. Since the cable passes over pulleys at A and D, the tension is the same along the entire length of the cable. If the rig lifts 3000 lbs at a distance 12 feet from the vertical member DF, determine

a) the tension in the cable, and

b) the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction at B.
