(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A 2-m long uniform rod AB is suspended horizontal by two vertical strings attached to the ends A and B. The rod has a mass of .6kg. A mass of 2kg suspended from the rod .8m from the end A. Determine the Tension in each string.

Hi, I have a physics worksheet I am trying to work on. This has confused me, I'm unsure of what to put inside of the equation without any angles and two different strings. I have labeled A T1 and B T2 and I know T1>T2. Also Torque must = 0 for the system to be in equilibrium so I make an equation = to T0 but if anyone could help with what to put into the equation I need some help. Thanks so much!
