Referring to Problem 359, if T = 30 kN and x = 1 m, determine the angle θ at which the bar will be inclined to the horizontal when it is in a position of equilibrium.
Referring to Problem 359, what value of T acting at x = 1 m from B will keep the bar horizontal.
A 4-m bar of negligible weight rests in a horizontal position on the smooth planes shown in Fig. P-359. Compute the distance x at which load T = 10 kN should be placed from point B to keep the bar horizontal.
The uniform rod in Fig. P-357 weighs 420 lb and has its center of gravity at G. Determine the tension in the cable and the reactions at the smooth surfaces at A and B.
