1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 5.0 kg mass is suspended by a rope. A horizontally directed force F is applied to the mass. What magnitude of force is needed to produce an angle of 65˚? mass = 5kg angle = 65˚ 2. Relevant equations F = mgsinx T = rFsinx 3. The attempt at a solution I tried using the first formula: F = (5kg)(.8m/s^2)(sin65˚) F = 44N I'm not sure if this is correct though, I am worried I used the wrong formula, but since I don't know the length of the rope I can't use the formula for torque.
