Problem 412 Right Triangular Truss by Method of Joints

Problem 412
Compute the force in each member of the truss shown in Fig. P-412. If the loads at B and D are shifted vertically downward to add to the loads at C and E, would there be any change in the reactions? Which members, if any, would undergo a change in internal force?
