A load W=2 kN is applied vertically to joint C of truss ABCDE as indicated. You will use the method of joints to obtain the axial forces in the bars and reactions at the supports A, E .

We start with the classification of the degrees of freedom as "free" or "constrained".

From the geometry of the truss, we see that we have:

Free DOF x and y at B, C, and D.

Constrained DOF x and y at A and E .

Question 1: Use MATLAB to find the axial forces in the bar.

Order the vector {X} of unknown axial forces in the bars as:
