**calculating forces in a truss, method of joints**
The question is to calculate the forces ina ll members of the trussnby method of joints.
First i have calculated the reaction forces for A and B by taking the moment from both these points.
These came too: Ay=65N and By=55N
I do not know where to go from here, what point should i analyse first, i tried analysing point H however i am not sure how i should go about this, is F_hj equal to zero. and would CH equal to the force of AC.
Please help i am lost. i just need to know how to start, so maybe could you just help me solve two points and i can probably finish the rest. thank you for your time.
