1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations torques equal to 0 forces = to 0 3. The attempt at a solution Torques in one direction is m2gL+1/2m1gL=Txcord. So i'm pretty sure the answers are either 1 or 2. I don't know how the angle affects anything. My friend said something about we can assume that the chord is 90 degrees with the bar, but i still don't see what the angle does.
