1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A uniform meter stick with a mass of 180 g is supported horizontally by two vertical strings, one at the 0 cm mark and the other at the 90 cm mark. What is the tension in the string at 0 cm and at 90 cm? 2. The attempt at a solution I changed 180 g to .18 kg. Using F=mg, I found mg=1.764 N. From there, I have made numerous attempts, but none make sense! I am making this problem way harder than it should be. Please help!

Sorry, I also know that the sum of the forces needs to be 0; and there is only forces in the y direction.
