This is a simple exercise but I can't solve it...


A 10m 9000N beam is risen up by two parallel wire ropes (a=0m/s^2), one attached to one end and the other 1m from the other end. At what force each wire rope is rising the beam? Sorry for the broken English.

[math]F_{net} = 0N[/math] because [math]a = 0ms^{-2}[/math], the forces on the beam are [math]F_{grav}=-(F_{rope1}+F_{rope2})=9000N[/math], and the free-body diagram didn't help me either. I'm awful in physics but if someone could give me more hints...
