The horizontal beam in ?Fig. E11.14 weighs 190 N, and its center of gravity is at its center. Find (a) the tension in the cable and (b) the horizontal and vertical components of the force exerted on the beam at the wall.
Solution 14E Step 1 : Consider the diagram a) the body with weight 300N is hanging down will make a reverse force on the upward direction (R ) shown in figure. We know that a system is in equilibrium sum of all forces is equal to zero. = 0 fx fy
