Question

A person with weight 700 N stands *d* = 1.00 m away from
the wall on a ℓ = 9.00 m beam, as shown in this figure. The weight
of the beam is 5,000 N. Define upward as the positive *y*
direction and to the right as the positive *x*
direction.

(a) Find the tension in the wire. (Enter the magnitude only.)
N

(b) Find the horizontal component of the hinge force. (Indicate the
direction with the sign of your answer.) N

(c) Find the vertical component. (Indicate the direction with the
sign of your answer.) N

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 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...

In the figure, a uniform beam with a weight of 56.9 N and a
length of 3.75 m is hinged at its lower end, and a horizontal
force of magnitude 58.2 N acts at its upper end. The
beam is held vertical by a cable that makes angle θ =
20.8° with the ground and is attached to the beam at height
h = 2.04 m. What are (a) the tension in
the cable, (b) the x-component of the
force on...

A uniform door (0.79 m wide and 2.0 m high) weighs 113 N and is
hung on two hinges that fasten the long left side of the door to a
vertical wall. The hinges are 2.0 m a part. Assume that the lower
hinge bears all the weight of the door. Find the horizontal
component of the forces, including sign, applied to the door by
(a) the upper hinge and (b) the
lower hinge, taking the direction to the right...

A uniform metal rod, with a mass of 3.0 kg and a length of 1.1 m
, is attached to a wall by a hinge at its base. A horizontal wire
bolted to the wall 0.55 mabove the base of the rod holds the rod at
an angle of 30 ? above the horizontal. The wire is attached to the
top of the rod.
(a) Find the tension in the wire
T = ________ N
(b) Find the hortizonal component...

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...

A diver of weight 450 N stands at the end of a diving board of
length L = 4.1 m and negligible mass (the figure). The
board is fixed to two pedestals separated by distance d =
1.8 m. Take the upward direction to be positive. Of the forces
acting on the board, what are (a) the force from
the left pedestal and (b) the force from the right
pedestal?

In the figure, a uniform beam of weight 470 N and length 3.6 m
is suspended horizontally. On the left it is hinged to a wall; on
the right it is supported by a cable bolted to the wall at distance
D above the beam. The least tension that will snap the cable is
1400 N. What value of D corresponds to that tension?

A 1,300–N uniform boom at
ϕ = 60.0°
to the horizontal is supported by a cable at an angle
θ = 30.0°
to the horizontal as shown in the figure below. The boom is
pivoted at the bottom, and an object of weight
w = 1,950 N
hangs from its top.
A boom of length l with its bottom end on a pivot is
shown. The boom points up and to the right and makes an angle
ϕ with the...

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...
