Determine the force created in the hydraulic cylinders EF and AD

Determine the force created in the hydraulic cylinders EF and AD in order to hold the shovel in equilibrium. The shovel load has a mass W and a center of gravity at G. All joints are pin connected.

Units Used:

Mg = 103 kg

kN = 103 N

Given:

a = 0.25 m θ1 = 30 deg

b = 0.25 m θ2 = 10 deg

c = 1.5 m θ3 = 60 deg

d = 2 m W = 1.25 Mg

e = 0.5 m
