**Scott**, Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 8:11pmthe force diagram reflects the physical setup

the walker is 15.0 m from either end; and is displacing the wire 1.0 m

this means that the vertical component of the tension is one-fifteenth the tension in the wire (on BOTH sides)

so the force exerted by the walker is 3675/15 * 2

the mass of the walker is the force, divided by gravitational acceleration (g)
