    A 1200 N uniform beam is attached to a vertical wall at one end and is supported by a cable at the other end. A W = 1940 N crate hangs from the far end of the beam. Use the data shown in the drawing to determine the following (see attachment).

    (a) Calculate the magnitude of the tension in the wire.

    (b) Calculate the magnitude of the horizontal and vertical components of the force that the wall exerts on the left end of the beam.
    Fx =
    Fy =
