**1. Homework Statement**

Find the angle Theta so that the system is in equilibrium

Mass of each block: 2 Kg

Mass of ring: 4π Kg

**2. Homework Equations**

Static equilibrium:

Rotational equilibrium

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Static equilibrium:

2g + 2g + 4πg = Normal

N = 4g + 4πg

Taking the torque with respect to the center of mass:

(N*(cosθ + sinθ)*2R*√2)/√2 * 3π + g*R(cosθ-sinθ) = [ 2*g*(cosθ+sinθ)*( (R/√2) + (2R√2)/3π) ] / √2 + 2*g*cosθ *(R + 2R/3π) + 2g*sinθ*(2R/3π)

This doesn't lead me anywhere.

Thanks for your help
