(eq. 2) From (eq. 1) we see that (a) N m m m s m kg L r L mg mg T 408 . 9 ) 08 . ( ) 042 . ( 08 . ) / 8 . 9 )( 85 . ( cos 2 2 2 2 2 = + = + = = , where I used 2 2 / cos L r L + = .

Problem 128*: Summing the ycomponents of the forces on the scaffold gives 2 1 = + mg Mg T T and hence g m M T T ) ( 2 1 + = + (eq. 1) , and summing the torques about the origin (left end of scaffold) gives 2 2 = + LT Mg xmg L . (eq. 2) and hence + = 2 2 M L xm g T .
