A uniform, level platform whose weight is P= 260 nt is held up by a vertical rope at one end ant a vertical cable at the other end. The length of the platform is L= 4.6 m. A painter whose weight W= 825 nt stands at a distance d=1.4 m from the rope.
See ATTACHMENT for diagram of parameters.
Find C, the force in the cable.
A. The equilibrium law states that about any chosen axis, "the total clockwise (cl) torque must be equal to the total counter clockwise torque ...
A platform in equilibrium with torques are found. A diagram of parameters are determined.
