PhysicsOverflow is a next-generation academic platform for physicists and astronomers, including a community peer review system and a postgraduate-level discussion forum analogous to MathOverflow.

Welcome to PhysicsOverflow! PhysicsOverflow is an open platform for community peer review and graduate-level Physics discussion.

Please help promote PhysicsOverflow ads elsewhere if you like it.


PO is now at the Physics Department of Bielefeld University!

  tension of a rope

+ 0 like - 2 dislike
A hungry bear weighs 700 N walks to a basket of candy that is located in
end of a beam . The beam is uniform and weighs 200N , with a length of 6.0 m . The beam is supported
by a cord forming an angle of 60 ° . The basket weighs 80 N. When the bear is within 1.2 m
determine the tension of the rope.

Closed as per community consensus as the post is not graduate-level. Might be appropriate on PhysicsForums.com if improved.

Hi Devin,

this question is not graduate-level and therefore off-topic for PhysicsOverflow, voting to close.

You might try to ask it in the appropriate subsection of PhysicsForums, but even there it is probably needed that you submit your own thoughts about the problem together with the question.
