Hello guys. Really need your helps. When I construct an equation(moment about point O), do I have to include the rod's mass also? Ive heard that I can neglect the rod's mass due to equilibrium equation. On the other hand, Ive also heard that I can only neglect mass if the point of mass is supported. Appreciate if you could show me the equation. Thanks in advance. * For some reason I cannot attached the image.*
