A sphere of mass 2.7 x 10^-4 kg is suspended from a cord. A steady horizontal breeze pushes the sphere so that the cord makes a constant angle of 41 degrees with the vertical. Find the magnitude of the push provided by the breeze and Find the tension in the cord.

you have a downward force of mg, and a horizontal force of F.

Tan theta=F/mg

solve for F.

Is that how to find the magnitude of the force of the breeze or the force of the Tension? I have to find two forces. thanks.

consider what the sine of the angle equals.
