INTRODUCTION:
This is a problem from my Introduction to Physical Science class using "Conceptual Physics" 10th Ed.by Paul G. Hewitt

EXACT PROBLEM:
"A 500 kg load is suspended from the end of the horizontal boom, as depicted in the diagram. The angle between the boom and the cable supporting its end is 45 degrees. Assuming that the boom's mass can be neglected compared to that of the load, find:"

PROBLEMS FACED:
a) the tension in the cable
b) the inward force that the boom exerts on the wall

MY THOUGHTS:
What am I doing here?
