1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data there is a composite shape (cone with ring attached at open end) total mass 52kg,cone m=22kg, ring=30kg find the 2 forces acting vertically upwards. the shape is lying on its side 21deg from the horizontal. 2. Relevant equations (xtotal x mtotal) = (xcone x mcone) + (xring x mring) balance forces ( up=down and left=right) 3. The attempt at a solution find the CG using (xtotal x mtotal) = (xcone x mcone) + (xring x mring) resolve forces into verical and horizontal components balance forces the problem im having is that one force is acting through the centrline at the tip of the cone and the other force is acting at the bottom point of the ring ( see pic) please help i am pulling my hair out!
