3. 

Determine the tension in the supporting cables BC and BD and the components of reaction at the ball-and-socket joint A of the boom. The boom supports a drum having a weight of 200 lb. at F. Points C and D lie in the x—y plane.

[A]. Ax = 0, Ay = 150 lb, Az = 562 lb, TBC = 300 lb, TBD = 212 lb
[B]. Ax = 0, Ay = 150 lb, Az = 456 lb, TBC = 150 lb, TBD = 212 lb
[C]. Ax = 0, Ay = 267 lb, Az = 843 lb, TBC = 533 lb, TBD = lb
[D]. Ax = 0, Ay = 150 lb, Az = 500 lb, TBC = 212 lb, TBD = 212 lb
