## Homework Statement

A 1200-N uniform boom at ∅=55° to the horizontal is supported by a cable at an angle θ=25.0° to the horizontal. The boom is pivoted at the bottom and an object of weight 2 000 N hangs from its top.

Find (a) the tension in the support cable and (b) the horizontal and vertical components of the reaction force exerted by the pivot boom.
