Example: A 0.300 kg mass rests on a 0.395 m long, 0.764 kg, uniform wooden plank supported by a string as shown in the figure. If the mass is 0.274 m from the wall and the angle between the string and the plank is 32.1°, (a) What is the force of tension in the string? and (b) What is the normal force from the wall? Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 Topic.
