## Homework Statement

A bucket full of water weighs 200N. it is hanging from a rope tied between two trees. They form an angle of 120* with each other. The tensions are equal.

## Homework Equations

F=ma

Rx=Ax+Bx+Cx

Ry=Ay+By+Cy

R=[(Rx)^2+(Ry)^2]^(1/2)

What's the tension in each rope?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Should I use the component method of vector addition here? I'm in a dead end. I tried the component method but don't know if th angle is negative or positive, and I'm also not sure if the the resultant that I would find would be the correct answer.
