1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the forces in each member of the truss shown. Also find the values for any reactant forces http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/6853/trussnu9.jpg [Broken] 2. Relevant equations Fx= 0 Fy= 0 3. The attempt at a solution I set θ in the corner of J1 tan θ=12/16 θ = tan-1 12/16 θ = 36.87 I set Φ in the corner of J3 tan Φ = 12/9 Φ = tan-1 12/9 Φ = 53.13 This is where I began to falter. I could not figure out how to diagram everything out. If someone could just at least give me a diagram of where things are supposed to go, I can sum up the x and y forces by myself. This is pretty urgent, and I was absent for this class so my only help is messy notes from another student. This isn't in my textbook. Any help will be appreciated.
