Consider a simple problem:

The force F is applied at the center of the rod. Hence, the reactions 1 and 2 at A and B will be equal.

(a) α = 0:

"R_1+R_2+F=0,\\\\\n2R+F=0,\\\\\\space\\\\\nR=-\\frac F2."

Reactions point to the right (opposite to the force)

(b) α = 90°,

"R_1+R_2+F\\text{sin}90\u00b0=0,\\\\\n2R+F=0,\\\\\\space\\\\\nR=-\\frac F2."

Reactions point opposite to F downward.

(c) α = 30°

"R_1+R_2+F\\text{sin}30\u00b0=0,\\\\\n2R+F\\text{sin}30\u00b0=0,\\\\\\space\\\\\nR=-\\frac{F\\text{sin}30\u00b0}2."

Reactions point to the left bottom corner at the same angle below the horizontal.
