# Kinematics and Tension of a Pulley

The position of the L- shaped rod shown is controlled by a cable attached at B. Knowing that the rod supports a load of magnitude P = 50 lb, write a computer program that can be used to calculate the tension T in the cable for values of O from 0 to 120° using 10° increments. Using appropriate smaller increments, calculate the maximum tension T and the corresponding value of O.
