4 in 4 in Solving Problems on Your Own The T-shaped bracket shown is supported by a small wheel at E and pegs at C and D. Neglecting the effect of friction, determine the reactions at C , D , and E when q = 30o. Problem 4-b 20 lb 40 lb A B 2 in C D 3 in 3 in E q 1. Draw a free-body diagram of the body. This diagram shows the body and all the forces acting on it.

4 in 4 in Solving Problems on Your Own The T-shaped bracket shown is supported by a small wheel at E and pegs at C and D. Neglecting the effect of friction, determine the reactions at C , D , and E when q = 30o. Problem 4-b 20 lb 40 lb A B 2 in C D 3 in 3 in E q 2. Write equilibrium equations and solve for the unknowns. For two-dimensional structure the three equations might be: SFx = SFy = SMO = 0 where O is an arbitrary point in the plane of the structure or SFx = SMA = 0 SMB = 0 where point B is such that line AB is not parallel to the y axis or SMA = 0 SMB = 0 SMC = 0 where the points A, B , and C do not lie in a straight line.
