Two cables are used to support a 24kg mass on 1.6 m long 8.0 kg unifrom horizontal beam. One cable is on each end of the beam and the mass is 0.6m from the right cable. What is the tension in the right cable?
The Attempt at a Solution
I really dont know where to set my pivot point.... I have tried multiple approaches.. the answer is 190 N. How do I separate the torque caused by the mass between the two cables?
