1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two weights attached to a uniform beam of mass 56 kg are supported in a horizontal position by a pin and cable as shown in the figure.The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . What is the tension in the cable which supports the beam? Answer in units of kN. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution here's what I have thus far... I'm sorry, I know it's not much! Known: Mbeam= 56k Mass 1 = M1 = 22kg Mass 2 = M2 = 59kg Force of M1 = F1 = M1g = 215.6N Force of M2= F2 = M2g = 578.2N ΣFy = 0 ΣFx = 0 ΣFτ = 0 If ΣFy = 0, then: 0 = Fcy – mg – F1 – F2 If ΣFτ = 0, then: 0 = -mg(4.2m) – F1g(2.6m) I'd really love it if someone could solve this for me, but it would be even better if someone could walk me through how to get the answer because I honestly have no clue! Thank you in advance!
