1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform steel beam has a mass of 1000kg. On it is resting half of an IDENTICAL beam, on one side. The length of the beam is L. The block and its' smaller counterpart are being held up by two poles, one on each side of the larger beam. What is the vertical support force for each beam? 2. Relevant equations T = rf F = mg 3. The attempt at a solution So, the fg for the smaller beam is 500(9.8) The fg for the larger beam is 1000(9.8) Where do I put the pivot points?
