Please help with these two problems. I am having a hard time with them. Thanks.


Solution Summary

1. A rod is pinned at one end and is swinging in a vertical plane. The reaction force at the pin is calculated
2. Two blocks attached by a string which passes through cylindrical pulley with mass(Atwood's machine). Related quantities are calculated in four parts.
