Homework Help: Statics: System (3D) in equilibrium - determine unknown variables (h)

  1. Mar 16, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Good day to all. I have been given a problem in statics and a system in equilibrium which in turn is giving me some problems.
    I have attached in a pdf file the problem context as well as my attempt at a solution.
    I have done so, because I was experience some problems with the formatting. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and for not adhering in a more strict fashion to the forum's expectations.

    2. Relevant equations

    Kindly see the pdf file attached.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Kindly see the pdf file attached.

    As I mention in the file, I was told that my results were wrong by my TA. I was told that the y value should be closer to -0.300. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
