Mechanics Homework 28-2 005-ms - Method of Sections Name_______________

Problem 28-2 The structure shown in Figure T-07 is pinned to the floor at A and H. Determine the magnitude of all the support forces acting on the structure and find the force in member BF.

$$R_H = 400 \, \text{ kN upward}$$
$$A_V = 300 \, \text{ kN downward}$$
$$A_H = 80 \, \text{ kN to the left}$$
$$F_{BF} = 128.06 \, \text{ kN tension}$$
