Show the free body diagram of the homogeneous bar *AB* as in Figure (1).

Step 2

Consider counter clockwise moment is positive and clockwise moment is negative.

Take moment about point *A*:

Determine the force *P* using the Equation of equilibrium;

Step 3

Consider upward force is positive.

Determine the normal force using the Equation of...
