To support the uniform boom a cable runs from this same point to a wall (the left-hand verti- cal coordinate in the figure) and by a pivot on the same wall at an elevation of 5 m . The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 VerticalHeight(m) Horizontal Distance (m) Boom and Weight 73 kg T 66 kg Figure: Drawn to scale. Calculate the tension in the cable. Correct answer: 2729 . 23 N (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: Let : M b = 73 kg , M w = 66 kg , = 10 m boom length , x b = 2 = 5 m , x = 8 m , y = 5 m , and h = 8 . 5 m . The static equilibrium conditions are summationdisplay T x = 0 , (1) summationdisplay T y = 0 , and (2) summationdisplay = 0 , or (3) W b x b + W w x = T y x.

Then using Eq. 5 and the figure, we have sin = T y T = h- y radicalbig ( h- y ) 2 + x 2 , T y = T ( h- y ) radicalbig ( h- y ) 2 + x 2 , (6) Solving Eq. 4 for T y , we have T y = ( W b x b + W w x ) x , and substituting T y from Eq. 6, we have T ( h- y ) radicalbig ( h- y ) 2 + x 2 = W b x b + W w x x homework 11 FRENNEA, KYLE Due: Apr 13 2007, 4:00 am 2 T = ( W b x b + W w x ) radicalbig ( h- y ) 2 + x 2 x ( h- y ) = [(73 kg) (5 m) + (66 kg) (8 m)] (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) radicalbig (8 . 5 m- 5 m) 2 + (8 m) 2 (8 m) (8 . 5 m- 5 m) = 2729 . 23 N . Question 2 part 1 of 2 10 points A solid bar of length L has a mass m 1 . The bar is fastened by a pivot at one end to a wall which is at an angle with respect to the horizontal. The bar is held horizontally by a vertical cord that is fastened to the bar at a distance x cord from the wall. A mass m 2 is suspended from the free end of the bar.
