(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A uniform thin rod of weight W = 100 N is supported horizontally by two vertical

props at its ends. At time t = 0 one of the these supports is kicked out. Find the

force on the other support immediately thereafter.

2. Relevant equations

F1 + F2 = mg

3. The attempt at a solution

-F1(L) + 100N(L) = 0

100N = F1

seems too simple.. i dont understand what i did, i just plugged it into a formula i found in the book....
