Physics

In the figure below, a spider is resting after starting to spin its web. The gravitational force on the spider is 0.167 N on the junction of the three strands of silk. The junction is supported by different tension forces in the two strands above it so that the resultant force on the junction is zero. The two sloping strands are perpendicular, and we have chosen the x and y directions to be along them. The tension Tx is 0.133 N.
