A man of mass 64.5 kg stands on a scaffold supported by a vertical rope at each end. The scaffold has a mass of 24.3 kg and is 3.6 m 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?
