1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 24 kg beam of length 2.4 m leans against a smooth wall. A horizontal rope is tied to the wall and holds the beam on a frictionless floor. The beam makes an angle of 55 degrees with the floor. WHat is the tension in the rope? (The rope is on the floor. 2. Relevant equations torque=force|| x distance 3. The attempt at a solution (Torque at the bottom of the beam) 24kg x 9.8 x cos55 x 1.2m + T x cos35 x 2.4m = F(normal1) x cos55 x 2.4m (torque at the top) 24kg x 9.8 x cos55 x 1.2m = F(normal2) x cos35 x 2.4m + Ff x cos55 x 2.4m Now what?
