Equilibrium of Bodies: Reaction forces at pivot points.

5. A crane of mass mc = 3400 kg supports a load of ml = 11300 kg as in Figure. The crane is pivoted with a frictionless pin at A and rests against a smooth support at B. Find the reaction forces at A and B.


Solution Summary

The load lifted by a crane, the reaction forces at pivots are calculated.
