1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform rod is supported by two strings. The string on the left hand side is horizontal. The string on the right hand side is at 30 degrees with respect to a straight line going from the end of the bar to the ceiling. If you had a straight line going from the end of the rod to the ceiling on the left hand side, what would be the angle with respect to the rod. 2. Relevant equations static equilibrium 3. The attempt at a solution I would assume that the angle we are searching for is 60 degrees. Because the opposing angles forces must equal zero when added and they are in static equilibrium. Thus they are equal.
