(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A system of cables is used to support a crate of mass m = 49 kg as shown in the figure below (θ = 57°). Find the tensions in all three cables.

2. Relevant equations

T2=mg

T3sinθ=T2

T1=T3cosθ

3. The attempt at a solution

So I calculated everything to be:

T1 = 300.06N

T2 = 480.20N

T3 = 566.24N

I believe my answer is correct, however, everytime I input T1 into the online assignment, the answer is wrong. I am wondering if anyone can confirm my answers.

Thanks
