The figure shows a vertical uniform beam of length L that is hinged at its lower end. A horizontal force is applied to the beam at distance y from the lower end. The beam remains vertical because of a cable attached at the upper end, at angle u with the horizontal. The figure gives the tension T in the cable as a function of the position of the applied force given as a fraction y/L of the beam length. The scale of the T axis is set by N. The figure gives the magnitude of the horizontal force on the beam from the hinge, also as a function of y/L. Evaluate (a) angle u and (b) the magnitude of .
