## Homework Statement

a single clotheline is attached to two poles 10 m apart. A pulley with a mass of 294N/Fg rolls down to the middle of the line. the middle is 0.4 m below each end. Determine the magnitude of the tension in the clotheline.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have made a right angle triangle and then used the ratios 0.4 and 5 m to find the force of the adjacent side of the triangle. then i use the given 294N and the adjacent 3675N in the pythagorean theorem. i get 3686.74N but the answer is 1800N rounded. which is half of my answer.
