1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A door 1.00 m wide and 2.00 m high weighs 330 N and is supported by two hinges, one 0.50 m from the top and the other 0.50 m from the bottom. Each hinge supports half the total weight of the door. Assuming that the door’s center of gravity is at its center, find the horizontal components of force exerted on the door by each hinge. 2. Relevant equations T = F*l 3. The attempt at a solution This problem is really giving me a hard time, because I know that both the horizontal and vertical components of the force of the hinge are exerting torques So, I start off with H1cos(a) + H2cos(b) = 0 H2sin(a) + H2sin(b) - mg = 0 For balancing the torque I choose the top left hinge as a pivot point Then the torque due to gravity would be mg*l which is just 0.5mg, now im not quite sure how to find the lever arm for the hinge force. Any suggestions?
