##### 1 Answer

29 kg

#### Explanation:

Balance the torques acting on the cabinet above the pivot point. i.e.,

W = weight = mg

R = reaction force exerted by the wall on the cabinet at the anchor. This force is left pointing/

Solving the equation above,

To express R in kg, divide it by g

The pivot assumes more than weight, it also takes on the horizontal force exerted on the cabinet by the wall at the anchor. Effective, the pivot experience
