Both strings are vertical. String A is attached at a distance from the left end of the bar and is connected to the ceiling; string B is attached to the left end of the bar and is connected to the floor. A small block of mass is supported against gravity by the bar at a distance from the left end of the bar, as shown in the figure. Throughout this problem positive torque is that which spins an object counterclockwise. Use for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Part A Find , the tension in string A. Hint A.1 Choosing an axis Hint not displayed Part A.2 Find the torque around the best axis Part not displayed Hint A.3 Summing the torques Hint not displayed
