(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Ok. I'm given a force diagram, and I have to figure out the reaction forces at the two points on the ground.

answer key: (498.1N↑; 104.2N→, 92.8N↑)

2. Relevant equations

Ok. I only got so far as the x-reaction force at the pivot... 600 sin 10 = <- 104.2N

3. The attempt at a solution

Total y-reaction forces - 600 cos 10 = 590.88N

600 cos 10 = 590.88N

600 sin 10 = 104.2N

root 0.2^2 x 0.3^2 = 0.36m

104.19N x 0.3m = 31.257Nm

590.88N x 0.2m = 118.177 Nm

498.1N + 92.8N = 590.9N

i cant figure out how to get 498.1N and 92.8N at the two points respectively...

anyone can show how to achieve the answer? Thx
