1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data See attachment. Find the tension in the string that is keeping this weird contraption together. The left stick has mass m, the right stick has mass 2m. m, θ and L are known quantities. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Tried starting with the right stick since there's less unknowns there. There's five forces acting upon it I think. By, Bx, T, Cy and 2mg. I got these equilibrium equations: By + Cy - 2mg = 0 T + Bx = 0 Cy*0.5cosθ - By*0.5cosθ - Bx*0.5sinθ = 0 Not sure where to go from here. Having a REALLY tough time getting an intuition for statics.
