Can you change the direction of Forces in the diagram, or make two forces coverage at the same point, when looking at objects in equilibrium?
How would I do this question: a sign of mass 50kg is supported by a wire and a rod as shown in figure 13 ( Rod and wire meet at an angle of 30 degrees, with the sign suspended at the same point, perpendicular to the rod. The rod and wire meet a wall)
I understand the weight of the object will act downwards and tension will act in the wire; will there also be a support force in the rod; if do how would the diagram be drawn
