take the center of mass as axis of rotation,
the net torque is zero in initial state.
Ta=Tb =>Fa×ra=Fb×rb
here Ta is torque by hinge and Tis torque by the rope.
ra=rb because the axis of rotation is at the center of the rod.
from this we get our both the forces to be equal.
and the net forces are zero
the forces upward i.e.Fa and Fb are opposed by a force downwards
the only force downwards is mg
Fa +Fb=mg
2Fa=mg   …......from our calculation above.
after cutting the rope the force on right is removed but force on ,left acts as normal reaction and this is equal to mg/2.
