1. A 162.4-N bird feeder is supported by three cables as shown in the figure below. Find the tension in each cable.

Left cable: __140__ N
Right cable: __80__ N
Bottom cable: __162.4__ N




SOLVED! :D

The question states that the bird feeder is supported by the three cables. This implies that the net force is zero. Hence find expressions for each component force and continue from there.
