Question

A uniform rod is attached to a wall by a hinge at its base. The rod has a mass of 6.0 kg, a length of 1.3 m, is at an angle of 37° above the horizontal, and is held in place by a horizontal cord attached to the other end of the rod and bolted to the wall above the base of the rod.

(a) Determine the tension in the cord.
N

(b) Determine the horizontal and vertical components of the force exerted on the rod by the hinge.
 FH = N FV = N
