Question Description:

20.50

A pinata of mass M = 11.9 kg hangs on a rope of negligible mass that is strung between the tops of two vertical poles. The horizontal distance between the poles is D = 2.65 m, the top of the right pole is a vertical distance h = 0.581 m higher than the top of the left pole, and the total length of the rope between the poles is L = 3.85 m. The pinata is attached to a ring, with the rope passing through the center of the ring. The ring is frictionless, so that it can slide freely along the rope until the pinata comes to a point of static equilibrium. a) Determine the distance from the top of the left (lower) pole to the ring when the pinata is in static equilibrium. b) What is the tension in the rope when the pinata is at this point of static equilibrium?,I figured out the Tension of the rope (part B) if you could just do part A that would be great,Neither of these are the correct answers… I know that the tensions and angles are supposed to be the same

Answer

20.50
