Homework Help: Physics

Posted by CM on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 1:10am.

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.
