Hi, I have been stuck on this question for a while, and I need help figuring it out.
For a lab, we had two ring stands set up about 1m apart from eachother, with the rings at different heights, and we tied a string between them. We then placed a 200g mass on the string. We had a LabPro with a force sensor attatched to one of the strings to read the tension, but we don't have the tension for the other string. We're supposed to resolve each tension into vertical and horizontal components, but I'm not sure how to do that when we don't have the tension in the one string.
Can anyone help me out with that?
