Three rods with length l and mass m are arranged like the figure in the attached file. There connections are without friction.

One rod is horizontal and the other two parallell and in the same plane.

An elastic string connects point A and B.

The tension in the string is proportional to its length.

Determine the equillibrium angle a and investigate the stability.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thank you.
