Physics

The ends of a light string are tied to two hooks A and B in a ceiling which are 100 cm apart horizontally so that the length between hooks is 140 cm. A 650g mass is then attached by a second length of string to a point C on the first, 80 cm from A, and hangs freely. Find, by drawing or calculation, the tensions in the portions AC and BC of the string.
