A man of mass 64.5 kg stands on a scaffold supported by a vertical rope at each end. The scaffold has a mass of 24.3 kg and is 3.6 m long. Suppose the man stands to the right from the middle of the scaffold that is a distance one sixth of the length of the scaffold. What is the tension in the right rope?
You asked this once before. See the comments of BobPursley and myself. Show your own calculations if you need more help.
