1. Homework Statement
I solved for all the forces in the members, but I was using a force truss member calculator to check my work. All the forces match up with the calculated but one, that is the force in member GH. I get 11.3 in tension the calculator gets 6 in tension. So am I right or the calculator? I attached the diagram. The load is 12.5 and is applied at joint C. There is a roller at joint I and a hinge at joint F. Can someone solve for member GH and tell me what they get.
