Homework Help: Static equilibrium

  1. Mar 10, 2012 #1
    A 736g uniform mass beam is used to suspend a sphere that weighs 5.25N. it is supported by an ideal rope attached to the wall, and one third the length along the beam (from the wall). The angle between the rope ans the beam is 51.0 degrees.

    a) draw a free body diagram
    b) calculate the tension in the rope
    c) calculate the horizontal force acting on the beam from the wall (including direction)
    d) calculate the vertical force acting on the beam from the wall ( including direction)
