1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A heavy horizontal girder of length L has several objects suspended from it. It is supported by a frictionless pivot at its left end and a cable of negligible weight that is attached to an I-beam at a point a distance h directly above the girder's center. Where should the other end of the cable be attached to the girder so that the cable's tension is a minimum? 2. Relevant equations F = Ma Torque = I(alpha) 3. The attempt at a solution In the y-axis I have: mg = T sin(theta) N = T cos(theta) where do I go from here?
