Question

A 1,100–N uniform boom at *ϕ* = 65.5° to the horizontal
is supported by a cable at an angle *θ* = 24.5° to the
horizontal as shown in the figure below. The boom is pivoted at the
bottom, and an object of weight * w* = 2,150 N hangs
from its top.

(a) Find the tension in the support cable.

(b) Find the horizontal & vertical components of the
reaction force exerted by the pivot on the boom. (Assume the
positive *x*-direction is to the right and the positive
*y*-direction is upward. Include the sign of the value in
your answer.)

**Both answers must be in kN.

Answer #1

A 560-N uniform rectangular sign 4.00 m wide and 3.00 m high is
suspended from a horizontal, 6.00-m-long, uniform, 120-N rod as
indicated in the figure below. The left end of the rod is supported
by a hinge and the right end is supported by a thin cable making a
30.0° angle with the vertical. (Assume the cable is connected to
the very end of the 6.00-m-long rod, and that there are 2.00 m
separating the wall from the sign.)...

A nonuniform beam 4.45 m long and weighing 1.08 kN makes an
angle of 25 ∘ below the horizontal. It is held in position by a
frictionless pivot at its upper-right end and by a cable a distance
of 3.06 m farther down the beam and perpendicular to it (see Figure
11.31 in the textbook). The center of gravity of the beam is a
distance of 1.97 m down the beam from the pivot. Lighting equipment
exerts a downward force...

A nonuniform beam 4.44 m long and weighing 1.10 kN makes an
angle of 25 ? below the horizontal. It is held in position by a
frictionless pivot at its upper-right end and by a cable a distance
of 3.02 m farther down the beam and perpendicular to it (see Figure
11.31 in the textbook). The center of gravity of the beam is a
distance of 2.04 m down the beam from the pivot. Lighting equipment
exerts a downward force...

A shop sign weighing 215N is supported by a uniform 130N beam of
length L = 1.67m.
1. The guy wire is connected D = 1.20m from the backboard. Find
the tension in the guy wire. Assume theta = 42.4o
2. Find the horizontal force exerted by the hinge on the
beam.
3. Find the vertical force exerted by the hinge on the beam. Use
"up" as the positive direction.

A hungry bear weighing 735 N walks out on a beam in an attempt
to retrieve a basket of goodies hanging at the end of the beam (see
the figure below). The beam is uniform, weighs 200 N, and is 5.00 m
long, and it is supported by a wire at an angle of θ =
60.0°. The basket weighs 80.0 N.
A horizontal plank is attached at the left end to a vertical
wall. A rod with a pulley...

A uniform horizontal beam with length l= 7.1m and weight W
b= 420N is attached to the wall by a pin connection. Its
far end is supported by a cable that makes an angle of
θ=60° with the beam. Furthermore, a picnic basket of
weight WP= 201N is hanging from the far end of the beam.
The hungry Yogy bear with a weight of WY= 816N is
standing on a beam at a distance d=8.0m from the wall.

A uniform horizontal beam with length l= 8.2m and weight W
b= 345N is attached to the wall by a pin connection. Its
far end is supported by a cable that makes an angle of
θ=60° with the beam. Furthermore, a picnic basket of
weight WP= 87N is hanging from the far end of the beam.
The hungry Yogy bear with a weight of WY= 758N is
standing on a beam at a distance d=2.0m from the wall.

A 10.0 metre long horizontal steel bar with a mass of 46 kg, is
pivoted at a vertical wall and supported by a cable that makes an
angle of 25 degrees to the bar. The cable is attached to the end of
the bar, at the opposite end of the bar to the wall, and is
anchored on the wall above the pivot point.
(a) Sketch a force diagram for this situation, and define all
the forces acting on the...

A uniform drawbridge must be held at a 35.0 ∘ angle above the
horizontal to allow ships to pass underneath. The drawbridge weighs
4.65×104 N , is 18.5 m long, and pivots about a hinge at its lower
end. A cable is connected 3.75 m from the hinge, as measured along
the bridge, and pulls horizontally on the bridge to hold it in
place.
Tension of cable: 1.64x105 N
Magnitude of the force of the hinge exerted on the bridge:...

A uniform 29 kg door that is 2.2 m high by 1.00 m wide is hung
from two hinges that are 20 cm from the top and 20 cm from the
bottom. If each hinge supports half the weight of the door, find
the magnitude and direction of the horizontal components of the
forces exerted by the two hinges on the door. (Take the direction
of forcing the door away from the hinges to be positive and the
direction of...
