I A question on towing through an angle

  1. May 17, 2016 #1
    Hello friends,

    I have a situation where I am looking to pull a load and would like to better understand the forces involved.

    In the first scenario I am pulling a load in a straight line, the load cell reads 10kN.

    In the second scenario I would like to pull the same load at an angle of 150o around a pulley.
    My first question is, would the load acting on the pulley simply be as suggested in the below diagram?
    My second question is, would my load cell continue to read 10kN?


    Many thanks for your help in this delicate matter,

    Tina :)

    Where do you put the load cell?
