I am having trouble with question 1 on the attachment posted. I understand that i need to get the area of the 2 bars. I am just not sure what to do with the forces. ALso i know the picture may be dark. P2 starts at point B and is pulling to the right and P3 starts at point C and is pulling to the left.

2. Relevant equations

I believe i use the equation A=∏d(^2)/4 to find the area but i am lost from there
