Homework Help: physics

Posted by kev on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 8:42pm.

An 76 kg construction worker sits down 2.0 m from the end of a 1440 kg steel beam to eat his lunch. The cable supporting the beam is rated at 15,000 N. Should the worker be worried? Determine the tension in the cable.

I can't figure it out.. I know I need to use tension sin 30, multiply it by the total distance and set it equal to the tension of the worker and beam but I can't get it right.. any help?
