If I have a steel cable pulling 5 degrees from straight down by 1500lbs. This cable goes up to the top of a 10 foot pole and is attached. Then I have a cable going out 20 feet in the opposite direction back to the ground. How many lbs. of force will be pulling at the end by the ground. Also what if I change the weight out to 45 degrees from down.
