A 14.9-kg object hangs in equilibrium at the end of a rope (taken as massless) while a wind pushes the object with a 67.7-N horizontal force. Find the tension in the rope and the rope\'s angle from the vertical. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.81 m/s2.
tanα =F/mg=67.7/14.9•9.8 = 0.46
α =arctan0.46= 24.9⁰
