the three weights are hanging in static equilibrium. The two weights left and right of center have a mass of 100 Kg. The weight in the center has a mass of 100 Kg. Treat the strings as massless and the pulleys as frictionless. If the sin of the angle theta in the figure is sin theta = 1/n3 , what is n3?
