a 10m uniform beam of weight 100 N is supported by two ropes at the ends. if a 400 N person sits at 2m from the left end of the beam, what is the tension in the left rope?

  • physics -

    The moment about the right rope attachment point must be zero. Use this fact to solve for the Tension on the left side rope.

    10N *2 - T*10 = 0

    Solve for T.
