## Homework Equations

Force by gravity = mg

tan-1 = (opp/adj)

costheta = adj/hyp

sintheta = opp/hyp

## The Attempt at a Solution

I drew a diagram relating to all the info given above. I have attempted to find the angle using mg and 3.5m i get something ridiculous like 1 degree. I know there are 180 degrees in a triangle and tried to find the other angle and follow this pattern using trigonometry until I was able to find the tension of the wire. My answer was way off.

apparently the correct answer is 177.

Thanks a mil.
