## Homework Statement

Basically, the string is attached a to a wall at the top right, with a mass m hanging on the other end. It asks to find the max mass m that can hang before bottom of the rod slips.

## Homework Equations

Fnetx=0

Fnety=0

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that Ft=mg for the hanging mass m.

Then for the x forces on the rod: Ft=Ffs

so usFn=mg

But I don't know what to do with the angle 50 degrees. You have to include it somewhere right?

I was thinking us(50)(9.8)(sin50)=m(9.8) but I don't know if that's right.

Thanks

Adam
