Situation 1 A box is suspended from the ceiling by two ropes each at an equal angle lesser than 30 degrees with the horizontal. Why is the tension of either rope greater than the weight of the box itself? Situation 2 A bungee jumper momentarily comes to rest at the bottom of his dive before he springs back upward. At the bottom of his jump, was he at a state of equilibrium? Why? or Why not? P.S. If these questions were already answered, which I'm guessing they already were, please point me in the right direction.
