Chapter 4, Problem 50.
The rig shown consists of a 5.4-kN horizontal member ABC and a vertical
member DBE welded together at B. The rig is being used to raise a
16.2-kN crate at a distance x = 4.8 m from the vertical member DBE. If
the tension in the cable is 18 kN, determine the reaction at E assuming
that the cable is (a) anchored at F as shown in the figure, (b) attached to
the vertical member at a point located 0.4 m above E.
