Homework Help: Question on wire tension & hinge force

  1. Nov 3, 2006 #1
    A person with mass 55.0 kg stands d = 1.85 m away from the wall on a x = 5.65 m beam. The mass of the beam is 40.0 kg. A wire connects the end of the beam to the opposite wall at an upward 30 degree angle. Find the hinge force components (Rx and Ry) and the tension (T) in the wire.

    btw, the wall that the wire connects to is facing opposite the first wall which is connected to the beam.
