Im having trouble understanding how to find the tension 'T' and pretty much answering the question on the .jpg file i have attached
ƩFx=0, ƩFy=0, τ=r x F
The Attempt at a Solution
For question 17 i have:
TLsinθ - w(l/2cosθ)-w(Lcosθ)= 0 (*because net sum of torques =0*)
And for question 18 i have no attempts at the question haha.
Help would be much appreciated!
