equilibrium -- A rod influenced by multiple rope tensions 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Smooth and identical rod has a weight of P. The rod seems to be in equilibrium with X and Y which has a weight of P. What can be the weight of X according to the values below?(ip means rope) P , 6P or 9P 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to find the torque. First I found the gravity center of the rod. It is 2.5 units from X and 2.5 units from Y. And found the answer as 2.5P=2.5X and X=P. But according to my book there are 2 values for X. One of them is 6P and the other is P.
