a uniform (in density and shape) stick is balanced by one end on the ground and the other tied to a massless horizontal rope attached to a wall as shown in the figure. The stick's mass is 10kg and its length is 5m.

a. Calculate the tension on the rope
b. Calculate the force (direction and magnitude) exerted by the stick by the ground.
