One end of a uniform 4.0-m long rod of weight is supported by a cable. the other end rests against the wall, where it is helf by friction. The co-efficient of static friction between the wall and the rod is .50 Determine the minimum distance,x,from point A at which an additional weight can be hung without causing the rod to slip at Point A...A and B are hold by a tension cable the makes an angle of 37 degrees

I have a very unclear picture of this. Sorry.
