Static Equilibrium Problem 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform bar of length 16 m and mass 8 kg is attached to a wall with a hinge that exerts a horizontal force Hx and a vertical force Hy on the bar. The bar is held by a cord that makes a 90 degree angle with respect to the bar and 45 degree with respect to the wall. What is the magnitude of the horizontal force Hx on the pivot? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . Answer in units of N 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I actually have no idea what I'm doing in this question. This chapter I do not get.
