Prove that this combined mechanism as determined in question l c and I d is the real collapse
load of the frame.

If.

In addition to the determination of the lowest collapse load based on the possible mechanisms an
additional "collapse load" is determined based on a deformation limit of 46/50.
Explain why the "real" collapse load is the lowest of both collapse loads.
