**Determining the weight and angle of an object -- Help please**

2. The leg and cast in the figure below weigh 158 N (w

_{1}). Determine the weight w

_{2}and the angle α needed so that no force is exerted on the hip joint by the leg plus cast.

w

_{2}= ________ N

α = ________ °

OK so I figured out how to do a problem similar to this just a few minutes ago on my own (:D I was so happy), but I have no idea how to solve for this one...

I need help!
