Unformatted text preview: acts at right angles to BD, and AC is vertical. (b) Determine the reactions at A and B. 2. (12 marks) The sketch shows a shaft BF with levers at both ends , act ed on by a force P = 500N at E and a force Q at A. The shaft is supported by frictionless bearings at C and D which are aligned with the shaft. Bearing D can exert an axial thrust, but bearing C can not. Lever AB and force P are parallel to the x axis, while lever FE and force Q is parallel to the y axis. Calculate the force Q and the components of the reactions at C and D, assuming equilibrium.
