1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform, horizontal 300N beam, 5.00m long, is attached to a wall by a hinge. Its far end is supported by a cable that makes an angle of 53.0° with the horizontal. A 600N person stands 1.50m from the wall. Find the tension in the cable (force). 2. Relevant equations What do I have to do? I calculated the moment/torque of 600N*1.50m and than add it to 300N*3.5m. This gives me 1950Nm. But I don't know how to get the right result (413N).
