A 33kg traffic light hangs from a vertical beam by two wires. The wire on the left side of the light has an angle of 53 degrees to the beam and the right side wire has an angle of 37 degrees with the beam. Calculate the tension in each of the wires. Would the tension just be 33kg(sin53) + 33kg(cosin53) for the left side, and 33kg(sin37) + 33kg(cosine37) for the right side?
