an electric sign weighing 200 newtons is supported by two slanting cables. each cable is attached to the same point of the sign and makes a 45 degree angle with the horizontal. what is the component of the force exerted by the sign along each of its cables?

    if the cables are at the center of the sign, assume each one carries 100N due to symettry.

    Sin45=100/Tension
    solve for tension.
