Homework Statement
As shown by the attachment we are given the distances and the 28kN force
Homework Equations
Relevent equations are equations of equilibrium;
ƩFy & ƩFx = 0;
ƩM = 0;
The Attempt at a Solution
First found By by summing the moments around point A;
(clockwise positive)
i.e.
ƩMa = (28*0.6)  (By*0.3) = 0
which gave By = 56kN
Next I summed the forces in the x direction and then took the sum of moments around the point "C", then tried to solve the simultaneous equations for Bx
However, this gave the wrong answer and I have no idea where to go.
Any help is great, thanks :D
