```							Let two uniform rods each of mass m and length l joined at angle θ constitute the V shaped rigid body ABC. The rigid body is suspended freely from point A and its BC part becomes horizontal and AB part remains inclined at angle θ with the horizontal when the system comes in equilibrium.Let the midpoint of AB be P and that of BC be Q.The vertical line drawn through the point of suspension A intersects BC rod at O.The weight of AB part mg will act vertically downward through P and its line of action intersects BC at R. Again weight (mg) of BC will act downward through its mid point Q .These two weights will lie in two opposite sides of OThe perpendicular distannce of the weight acting through P from O is OR=l2cosθ.Again the perpendicular distance of the weight acting through Q from O isOQ=BQ−BO=l2−lcosθSo at equlibrium of two weigtsmg×OR=mg×OQmg×l2cosθ=mg×(l2−lcosθ)⇒32cosθ=12⇒cosθ=13⇒θ=cos−1(13)=70.5
