1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 60 kg man hangs one meter from the end of an 8 m, 100 kg beam. A steel cable is attached to the end of the beam near the man, and the opposite end is supported by a frictionless pin (or a hinge). The system is originally at rest. The cable makes a 35 degree angle between the horizontal and the hypotenuse. Find the tension in the cable. 2. Relevant equations T=Fd Net Force=0 Net Torque=0 3. The attempt at a solution I draw my free body diagram and get the weight force of the steel rod being exerted at 4 m. I get the hanging man’s normal force at 7 m. I get a tension force at 35 degrees on one end, and then I get a vertical and horizontal normal force from the pin on the other side. Horizontal forces Pin(x)-Cable(x)=0 Vertical forces Pin(y) + Cable(y) -Beam- Man=0 I am having trouble incorporating torque into this problem and I know I need to. Where should I place my reference frame to find torque?
