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
