Question: as shown a mass is suspended from a cable that...

Question details

As shown, a mass is suspended from a cable that wraps around a frictionless and massless pulley. The cable connects to a linear elastic spring. For this problem, treat the pulley as a point particle at B.
The cable segment attached to the spring is at an angle of φ 50.0° from the ground. The spring has a spring constant of k 16.5 kN/m . The pulley is attached to the ceiling by rod BD that forms an angle θ-70.00 with the ceiling. The hanging mass causes a tension of 3690 N in rod BD. What is the displacement of the spring? Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units. View Available Hint(s) Templates undo rêdo reset Symbolskeyboard shortcuts help Value Units
Part B - Finding the weight of the hanging mass Find the weight of the hanging mass when the spring, with spring constant 16.5 kN/m , has been stretched 11.9 cm. The tension in rod BD is 3483 N. Recall that the pulley is massless. Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units.
