1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 1000N beam is loaded with a 2000N filing cabinet and supported by two cables. If the beam is 8 meters long and the filing cabinet is 2 meters from the left cable, what is the tension force in each cable? 2. Relevant equations T= F /d 3. The attempt at a solution For the left cable I tried T= 2000 N / 2 m. This answer was incorrect though.
