The Lshaped bar
ACE
in Figure 3 is pinned at
A
and makes contact through a frictionless
roller with the inclined surface at
E
. It is loaded by a vertical force
F
at
D
. Draw a freebody
diagram of the bar, determine the reactions at
A
, and hence find the internal forces (axial force,
shear force and bending moment) at the point
B
.

Figure 4 shows an Lshaped steel pipe
OAB
which is bolted to a vertical wall at
O
and loaded
by two horizontal forces at
B
. Calculate all the reaction forces and moments at the wall
O
and
indicate which moments are bending moments and which are torques.
