A uniform rod of length $l$ is placed symmetrically on two walls as shown in figure. The rod is in equilibrium. If $N_{1}andN_{2}$ are the normal forces exerted by the walls on the rod then:

A

$N_{1}>N_{2}$

B

$N_{1}<N_{2}$

C

$N_{1}=N_{2}$

D

$N_{1}andN_{2}$ would be in the vertical directions

Correct option is C)

As the rod is in equilibrium, thus net torque about point O is zero i.e. $τ_{o}=0$
