1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the figure below, a uniform beam of weight 520 N and length 3.4 m is suspended horizontally. On the left it is hinged to a wall; on the right is it supported by a cable bolted to the wall at distance D above the beam. The least tension that will snap the cable is 1200 N. What value of D corresponds to that tension? 2. Relevant equations [tex]\Sigma[/tex]F in the x direction = 1200 3. The attempt at a solution That equation is a guess within itself..I really have no clue how I should go about solving this problem..
