A crow sits on a clothesline midway between two poles as shown. Each end of the rope makes an angle of θ = 16° below the horizontal where it connects to the pole. If the combined weight of the crow and the rope is 8.4 N, what is the tension in the rope?

    assuming each side holds half the weight..

    I see a triangle where sinTheta=(1/2weight)/Tension


    sinTheta=(4.2N)/Tension

    solve for Tension.
