Can somebody help me to solve this problem and guide? I need to calculate minimum force (

**F**) (Newtons or kilograms) is required to pull down object (**K1**) to (**K2**), or to hold it in position. Angle between (**K1**) and (**K2**) = 50 degrees. Using mounting points (**P1**) and (**P2**). (**K1**) mass = 3.5 ton, (**A**) Length = 9 meters, (**B**) Height = 3.5 meters. Mounting points (**P1**) and (**P3 is on a hinge**) distance from center = 75centimeters, (**C**) = 1.3 meters in total. Height from point (**P1**) to (**P2**) is 1.7 meters.
