Question How do I determine if a wall is load bearing

We want to take down a wall and make two rooms into one large room. How do we determine if the wall between the two rooms is load bearing? This same wall also has a large archway in the middle.

hope this will help you

the only way to find out if the wall is load bearing is to determine weather the trusses are supported by that wall, and or a floor joice is supported by the wall.
