A man of mass 76.1kg stands on a scaffold supported by a vertical rope at each end. The scaffold has a mass of 23.9kg and is 3.0m 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?

b).what is the tension in the left rope?

  • Physics ~!!!!!!! -

    Sum moments about the right end.

    Tl*3-23.9g*1.5-76.1g(d)=0 where d is where the man is standing.
    1/6 length scaffold is .5m, so the man is standing at 1.5-.5=1.0 or d=1.0 check that.

    solve for tension left Tl
