Question

A bar of length L and uniform density is held horizontally against a wall by a pivot at one end and a rope of tension T which pulls up and to the left making an angle \theta with the vertical wall. The rope is attached to the bar at a distance l = \frac{1}{3} L from the wall. A mass M is resting at the end of the bar.If the bar has total mass 2.6kg, the mass M=2.6kg, and the rope makes an angle of 22.0 ^{\circ} with the wall, what is the magnitude of the force exerted on the bar by the pivot | \vec{F_{pivot}} |? Answer in Newtons (N).

Answer #1

Given is:-

mass of the bar = 2.6kg

M = 2.6kg

Angle made by rope with the wall = 22 degrees.

where L = length of the bar

Since the bar is in equilibrium so the net torque about the pivot point must be zero.

Therefore the torque about pivot point is =

equating this to zero

by plugging all the values we get

which gives

Now,

The net vertical force at pivot =

Net vertical force at pivot = -63.7 N (negative sign shows that it is downwards)

Similarly the net horizontal force =

Net horizontal force at pivot = 46.326N

Hence the net force on pivot exerted by the bar is

by plugging all the values we get

we get

Therefore the required answer is

10.0-m long bar is attached by a frictionless hinge to a wall
and held horizontal by a rope that makes an angle 53 degrees with
the bar. The bar is uniform and weighs 39.9 N.
How far from the hinge should a 10.0-m Kg mass suspended from
the tension T in the rope to be 125 N?

1. A uniform bar of length 4.7 m and mass 4.4 kg is attached to
a wall through a hinge mechanism which allows it to rotate freely.
The other end of the bar is supported by a rope of length 5.6 m
which is also connected to the wall. What is the tension in the
rope in N?

wall through a hinge mechanism which...

A uniform bar is attached to a wall by a frictionless hinge at
its lower end. The bar is held at an angle of 30 degrees above the
horizontal by a cable that is attached to the upper end of the bar.
The cable makes an angle of 53 degrees with the bar. The tension in
the cable is 80 N. A) What is the mass of the bar? B) What are the
magnitude and direction of the resultant force...

A uniform beam of length 1.0 m and mass 10 kg is attached to a
wall by a cable. The beam is free to pivot at the point where it
attaches to the wall. What is the tension in the cable? (THE ANGLE
IS 30 degrees)

A bar of mass m and length L is balanced on a rough wall as
shown. The bar is not attached to the wall in any way (i.e. there
is no hinge: the bar is just pushing against the wall). Find: the
tension of the cable, and the force of the wall pushing on the bar.
Hint: Make your x-axis parallel to the bar. What are the forces
from the wall on the bar along those axis?
never mind

5) A 2kg metal bar with 3 meters length is pivoted to the wall
on one end and it is attached with a string on the other end to 4
meters above the pivot. A 0.5 kg additional mass is placed on the
bar 1.2 meters away from the pivot. Calculate the Tension.
Calculate the reaction force of the pivot both as a vector and as
magnitude.

A uniform ladder of length l and mass m rests against a smooth,
vertical wall. The coefficient of static friction between ladder
and ground is 0.35. Find the minimum angle at which the ladder does
not slip. (Consider the torques about an axis perpendicular to the
page through O)

One end of a light uniform rod is attached to a wall by a
frictionless hinge. The rod is held in a horizontal position by a
wire that runs from the other end of the rod to the wall. The wire
has length 2.00m and makes an angle of 30.0âˆ˜ with the rod. A block
with mass m is suspended by a light rope attached to the middle of
the rod. The transverse fundamental standing wave on the wire has...

The uniform bar is placed on a 9 - meter wall at an angle of 45
degrees from the smooth surface of the floor. The bar extends above
the top of the wall with weight of 550 kN and has its mass center 7
meters from the floor. The wire is attached to the bar 2 meters
above the floor.

the bar and the smooth surface of the floor. Answer in 2...

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...
