The simple pin-connected structure carries a concentrated load P as shown. The rigid bar supported by structure AB and by pin at C. The steel strut Ab has a cross sectional area of .25in2 and a yield strength of 60ksi. The diameter of the steel pin at C is 0.375in and the ultimate shear strength is 54ksi. If a factor of safety of 2.0 is required in both the strut and the pin at C. determine the maximum load P that can be supported by the structure.
