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?

  • physics -

    assuming each side holds half the weight..

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


    sinTheta=(4.2N)/Tension

    solve for Tension.
