The bars are in equilibrium, each 5 m long,

and each weighing 82 N. The string pulling

down on the two bars is attached 0.6 m from

the fulcrum on the leftmost bar and 0.5 m

from the left end of the rightmost bar. The

spring (of constant 32 N/cm) is attached at

an angle 29

at the left end of the upper bar.
