1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform rod AB of length 3R weight W rests inside a hemispherical bowl with radius of R. Determine the angle corresponding to equilibrium. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Moment about A: -1.5R*mg cos(theta)+B*AB=0 Sum Fx: Acos(theta)-mg sin(theta)=0 Sum Fy: Asin(theta)-mg cos(theta)+B=0 sin(theta)/R=Sin(180-2theta)/AB I have 4 equations and 4 unknowns: A, B, AB, theta Does that seem right?
