http://img185.imageshack.us/img185/8830/cablesyv1.gif [Broken] You're looking at the design for my recent lab we did. Now, you would think, given the geometry of the loadings (i.e. post heights, eye bolt height, weight heights, distances from a specified origin) that the x components of the tension in the middle cables (on the left and right side of the eye bolt) would be equal, no? BUT! After using my data and calculating the x components of these tensions, I'm getting that one set is about twice the other set of x values. Is there a physical reason for this, or is there some unknown error? I've checked and rechecked my calculations, but NOTHING is making sense.
