Hi, colleagues! Am preparing for CSWP-simulation exam. Have some problems with sample exam. My first problem: Manual Calculation 1.

The right answer is 7.354 lbs. But what is the process of calculation in details, please?

1. Reaction force on R is :

Sin(45)*10= 7.071lbs

2. the Moment is :

7.071*0.5 =3.53 lb.in

F on Y : (-F.cos45)+R+B=0.

M on Y : (F.cos45)*0.5)+(0.7*B) = 0

B = 5.05 (the other side of the bar oppiste to R).

Ry = 2.021

Reaction on R = sqrt(2.021^2 + 7.071^2) = 7.354

DOES ANY ONE KNOW HOW TO CALCULATE THIS THING?
