The system in Fig. 13-37 is in equilibrium. A concrete block of mass m = 236 kg hangs from the end of the uniform strut whose mass is 46.5 kg. (Please see attachment).
(a) Find the tension T in the cable.
(b) Find the horizontal component of the force exerted on the strut by the hinge.
(c) Find the vertical component of the force exerted on the strut by the hinge.
The solution is provided in an attachment.
