(35 points) Replace the force system acting on the pipe assembly by a resultant force and couple at point O. Express the results in Cartesian vector form. y 2. (30 points) The jib crane is supported by a pin at C and rod AB. The rod can withstand a maximum tension of 40 kN. If the load has a mass of 2000 kg, with its center of mass located at G, determine its maximum allowable distance x and the corresponding horizontal and vertical components of reaction at C. 3. (35 points) Determine the horizontal and vertical components of reaction at the pin A and the normal force at the smooth peg B on the member.
