A 3-meter rod with a weight of 1000 N is suspended by two cables and has a large box(3500

N in weight ) tied to the right-hand side hanging vertically. The center of mass of the rod is .5

min from the leftmost edge. One cable is exactly on the leftmost end of the rod with a tension of

4000 N at an angle of 30 degrees to the rod . The second cable is 1 m to the right of the center of

mass and has an unknown tension. What is the tension in the second cable and what angle

does it make with the rod? You must draw a diagram so I can understand your answer.

Step 1

Consider the free body diagram below.

Step 2

Using the free body diagram,

Step 3

Therefore, the angle made by tension i...
