Tension = 386lb(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Bx = 493lb

By = 186lb

I am having trouble trying to determine the tension in the picture. And the x and y component of B

i have a long bar that is 14 feet long. it is connected at 1 end at point B to a pin support and the other end is tied to a rope at point a.point a the rope has a angle of 30 degrees off of vertical. then i have a downward force of 600 N 30 degrees of the vertical 9 feet away from point B. how do i find the tension in the rope ?

the componets of the 600n force are as follows

-600sin30 = -300

-600cos30 = -519.615

if the rope is 5 feet from these componets how would i find the tension ? and what would be the reaction on point B ?

reaction of By = (-600cos30*5ft)/14ft = 185.6lb = 186lb

how do you find Bx and the tension at rope ?
