A massless bar of length, S = 7.6m is attached to a wall by a frictionless hinge (shown as a circle). The bar is held horizontal by a string that makes and angle θ = 37.4 degrees above the horizontal. An object of mass, M = 6kg is suspended at a length, L = 5.4m from the wall. What is the tension, T, in the string?

 a) 3.45E+01 N b) 4.34E+01 N c) 5.46E+01 N d) 6.88E+01 N e) 8.66E+01 N
