Cord are looped around a small spacer separating two cylinders each weighing 400 lb and pass, as shown in the figure, over frictionless pulleys to weights of 200 lb and 400 lb. Determine the angles theta and the normal pressure N between the cylinders and the smooth horizontal surface.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I cant figure out how to solve it.

Thanks in advance!
