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. T m 2 m 1 x cord L Find the tension T in the cord. 1. T = parenleftbigg m 1 + 1 2 m 2 parenrightbiggparenleftbigg L x cord parenrightbigg g cos 2.

T = ( m 1 + m 2 ) g cos 9. T = ( m 1 + m 2 ) g sin 10. T = 0 Explanation: Under static equilibrium, summationdisplay F = 0 and summationdisplay = 0 . Since we know little about the reaction force between the bar and the wall, it is easi est to begin by examining the torques around the connection between the bar and the wall, because the reaction forces will produce no torques around that point. summationdisplay = Lm 2 g + x cord T L 2 m 1 g = 0 .

Question 2, chap 14, sect 3. part 2 of 2 10 points Find the the horizontal component of the force exerted on the bar by the wall. (Take right to be the positive direction.) 1.

F x = ( m 1 + m 2 ) g sin Explanation: In general, there will be a horizontal reac tion force R x at the connection between an object and a wall. However, none of the other forces in this situation act in the horizontal direction, so summationdisplay F x = R x = 0 . oldhomewk 28 PAPAGEORGE, MATT Due: Apr 6 2008, 4:00 am 2 Question 3, chap 14, sect 1....
