# A bar suspended by two vertical strings???

0

The figure shows a model of a crane that may be mounted on a truck.A rigid uniform horizontal bar of mass m1 = 80kg and length L = 6.00m is supported by two vertical massless strings. String A is attached at a distance d = 1.4m from the left end of the bar and is connected to the top plate. String B is attached to the left end of the bar and is connected to the floor. An object of mass m2 = 3500kg is supported by the crane at a distance x = 5.8m from the left end of the bar.

Also Check This  At the end of chapter 19 in to kill a mockingbird, what does Mr. Raymond mean by thin-hided?

Throughout this problem, positive torque is counterclockwise. Use 9.81m/s/s for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity.

(1) Find T(A) the tension in string A.

(2) Find T(B) the magnitude of the tension in string B.

Can someone please show how to do this?

Here is the diagram.

• _____

As bar is in rotational equilibrium,taking torque at left end

Torque due to T(B) =0

Torque due to T(A) =T(A)*1.4 counterclockwise

Torque due to weight of bar = 809.813=2354.4 N clockwise

Torque due to weight of object =35009.815.8=199143 N clockwise

counterclockwise torque =clockwise torque

T(A)*1.4 =201497.4

T(A) =143926.71 N

T(B) + m1g +m2g =T(A)

T(B)=143926.71 -3580*9.81

T(B) =108806.91 N

(1) T(A) the tension in string A.is 143926.71 N

(2) T(B) the magnitude of the tension in string B is 108806.91 N
