I need a step by step visual of how to do this question: A uniform horizontal beam 5.00m long and weighing 3.00x10^2 N is attached to a wall by a pin connection that allows the beam to rotate. Its far end is supported by a cable that makes an angle of 53 degree with the horizontal. A person weighing 6.00x10^2 N stands 1.50 m from the wall.
a) Determine the magnitude of the tension in the cable. b) Determine the vertical forces exerted by the wall on the beam.
My cable tension is 833.5 Newtons. Can't go further if that's not right.
