A cable passes over a small pulley that is attached to the arm at E. One end of the cable is attached to the beam at point B. The tensile force in the cable is 1800 lb. Draw the shear-force and bending-moment diagrams for beam ABCD. (Note: Disregard the widths of the beam and vertical arm and use centerline dimensions when making calculations.)
