6.

There is a ball and socket connection at A. At point B there is a connection that opposes motion in the x and z directions only. Determine the unknown force components at A and B. Use a scalar analysis.

[A].
A_{x} = 5.5 kN, A_{y} = -1.0 kN, A_{z} = 2.75 kN, B_{x} = 3.5 kN, B_{z} = 1.25 kN, F_{DC} = 2.0 kN [B].
A_{x} = 1.5 kN, A_{y} = -1.0 kN, A_{z} = 0.75 kN, B_{x} = -3.5 kN, B_{z} = 1.25 kN, F_{DC} = 2.0 kN [C].
A_{x} = 5.5 kN, A_{y} = -1.0 kN, A_{z} = 2.75 kN, B_{x} = 3.5 kN, B_{z} = -0.75 kN, F_{DC} = 2.0 kN [D].
A_{x} = 1.5 kN, A_{y} = -1.0 kN, A_{z} = 1.25 kN, B_{x} = -3.5 kN, B_{z} = 0.75 kN, F_{DC} = 2.0 kN
