The units are different.
One is the force unit, and one is the length unit.
Then how to find the h?

 I intend to find the all forces and then find the length through the force quantity. I will find the forces component firstly. x-component=150cosθ N (h cm), y-component=150sinθ N (40cm) 150cosθ N= 170N <----but it is math error or no solution Then I can't find, help please.

## Statics questions

... you tried to do too many steps at once.
Start by drawing free body diagrams for the collar and the weight - separately.
Don't forget the tension in the cable.

If the angle between the rod and the cable (off the collar) is A, then you can express the trig functions in terms of things you know: eg. tan(A)=40/h.
