Consider the 665 N weight held by two cables
The left-hand cable had tension T2 and makes an angle of 43◦ with the ceiling. The right-hand cable had tension T1
and makes an angle of 48◦ with the ceiling.
What is the tension in the cable
T1 slanted at an angle of 48◦?
Answer in units of N

• Physics -

sum of vertical forces is zero.

665-T1*sin48-T2*sin43=0
sum of horizontal forces is zero
T1*cos48-T2*cos43=0

solve this system of two equations, two unknowns.

• Physics -

Answer is T1=23.33N and T2=67.56N

• Physics -

T1=20.33 and T2=60.56
