6. Figure shows a uniform bar of length L and weight 40 N subjected to several external
forces. Another force is needed to put the bar in static equilibrium. Find the magnitude and
direction of the force and the location where the force acts on the bar. (take point A as the
reference axis).

9. In figure, AB is a uniform rod length 6.0 m and weighs 1000 N is hinged at point A with a
load of 1500 N hung from point B. The string CD which is tied at C and D keeps the
system in equilibrium with the rod AB making an angle of 39° with the horizontal.
Calculate
(a) the tension in string CD.
(b) the magnitude and direction of the reaction force exerted by the wall at A.

10. In figure, a load of weight W is attached at a point O to a uniform rod CE of length 100cm.
The rod hangs horizontally from two ropes which are fixed to a point A and B as in figure.
If the weight of the load, W = 1500 N and the weight of the rod is 500 N, determine
(a) the tension of each rope if the load is 35 cm from C.
(b) where the load should be placed in order for the tensions of the two ropes to be the
same.
