**1. The sign Ye Olde Tavern is supported by a horizontal beam (A-C) and a cable (B-C). The sign has a weight of W= 294 N.**

a) Take (Summate) the torques of the system about point A then find the tension in the cable.

b) Find the vertical force on the wall attachment at point A by taking torque about point C.

c) Find horizontal force on the wall attachment at point A.

b) Find the vertical force on the wall attachment at point A by taking torque about point C.

c) Find horizontal force on the wall attachment at point A.

The Angle is θ

Total Length of the beam is 4d with the sign being equal to 3d (so there is a gap of 1d)

A is the base right angle

B is where the cable and pole meet

C is where the cable and beam meet.

**T=Ia**

Fx - Tcosx = 0

Fy + Tsinx -Fg = 0

Fx - Tcosx = 0

Fy + Tsinx -Fg = 0

**I really have no idea how to go about this problem but for**

a) at point A ƩT=∅ along with ƩF=∅

so I believe that tension would have to equal T=0 for the cord (?)
