Okay, i posted a picture of the problem above, sorry if blurry, do not have scanner. i will retype problem, The mass of block A is 250 kg. Block A is supported by a small wheel that is free to roll on the continuous cable between supports B and C the length of the cable is 42 m. Determine the distance x and the tension T in the cable when the system is in equilibrium. I tried doing a sum of forces in x and y components and equal to zero but i am not getting it. I am wondering, is the tension throughout the whole cable going to be 250(9.81)? or is it different for each side of the weight? Any help on where to go is helpful thank you.
