Mechanics of Materials
3.) The bent rod ABC is supported:
at A by a properly aligned journal bearing
at D by a ball & socket joint
at B by a cable BC
The bearing at A is capable of exerting force components only in x & y directions; it does not resist any moments.
Set up the 6 equilibrium equations necessary to solve for the reactions at A, D, and cable tension BC. Place in Matrix form.
