Unformatted text preview: 5.73 A folding platform is used to hold parts as well as conserve ﬂoor space when
not in use. The platform is supported by a. hinge at C which is assumed to
support negligible moments, a. leg, at B modeled as a frictionless support and
moments. Ifthe platﬁmn is loaded as illustrated compute the reaction forces
at A, B and C. Ignore the thidrness of the platform. FIGURE P5.73 Soiution: The free body diagram is given in ﬁgure 55.73.
The equations of equilibrium become: (continued) 451 ...
