Mechanics Homework 29-3 444 - Analysis of an A-Frame by Method of Members Name_______________

Problem 29-3 The frame shown in Figure P-444 is supported by a hinge at A and a roller at E. Compute the horizontal and vertical components of the hinge forces at B and C as they act upon member AC.

$$B_H = 4 ~ \text{kN to the right}$$
$$B_V = 12 ~ \text{kN upward}$$
$$C_H = 4 ~ \text{kN to the left}$$
$$C_V = 9.6 ~ \text{kN downward}$$
