1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The entire problem can be found in this image link. http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?58acd0e92b.jpg 2. Relevant equations Equilibrium so the usual: Total F = 0, Total moment = 0 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not sure how we're supposed to find out the answer because there seems to be too many unknowns. I'm assuming the rope is an unknown tension force, and we also have 2 unknowns at point a and b.
