# CIVIL ENGINEERING HELP: Finding reaction forces in x and y directions and forces in truss members?

For the truss shown below, calculate the reaction forces at A and B, then use the method of joints to calculate the internal forces in each of the members. a = 2.0 m, b = 2.5 m and c = 3.5 m. P1 = 13 kN, P2 = 7 kN and P3 = 14 kN.
Reaction force at A in y direction (kN, positive up) = ?
Reaction force at B in y...
