1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform strut of length, L and weight 780 N is free to pivot about point P where it is attached to the wall (see diagram) A weight W = 815 N hangs straight down from the end of the strut. A rope is attached to the same end as the load and the wall completes the support as shown. Determine the tension in the rope. 2. Relevant equations ƩF = 0 Ʃτ = 0 3. The attempt at a solution 0 = τ1 + τ2 + τ3 0 = LTsin90 - (L/2)(sin60)(W1) - W2 divide out L's and move weights over Tsin90 = (1/2)(sin60)(W1) + W2 T = (1/2)(sin60)(W1) + W2 plug in weights and solve T = 1152.7499 N Which isn't right. I don't really know where I'm going wrong, I've tried a few different things but they're not working. I can solve these when beam is horizontal, so I'm guessing my error has something to do with what I'm doing with the angles.
