Help me please to Find the tension in the two wires that supoort the light fixture. M=13 kg, è=43 degrees???!!

asked by sarah
  1. If the two wires are at the same angle to the horizontal (43 degrees), they have equal tension, T.

    Balance the vertical forces with

    2 T sin 43 = M g

    Solve for T
