  1. Mar 18, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The mass of the weight is 600[kG], the tension in the wire 3000[N]. what is the force of reaction at C

    2. Relevant equations
    Disassembling of forces using pitagoras formula

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The vertical reaction at C:
    $$3000\cdot \sin 53^0+5886=8282$$
    In the book 8480
