Homework Help: Concurrent forces

  1. Sep 22, 2005 #1
    Can I get some help?! The problem reads:

    "A boy and girl carry a 12.0kg bucket of water by holding the ends of a rope with the bucket attached at the middle. If there is an angle of 100.0 degrees between the two segments of rope, what is the tension on each part?"
