🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Roland's class at NCSU.

Solution: A uniform beam 4.30 m long and weighing 2500 N carries a 3200 N weight 1.50 m from the far end, as shown in the figure below. It is supported horizontally by a hinge at the wall and a metal wire at the far end. What are the horizontal and vertical components of force exerted on the beam by the hinge?
