1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the figure below, a uniform beam of length 12.0 m is supported by a horizontal cable and a hinge at angle θ = 40°. The tension in the cable is 600 N. 2. Relevant equations T=F x r 3. The attempt at a solution I attempted to calculate the net torque using all the forces(mg and tension), so 0=mgsin(40) - Tension.
