During a storm, a tree limb breaks off and comes to rest across a barbed wire fence at a point that is not in the middle between two fence posts. The limb exerts a downward force of 164 N on the wire. The left section of the wire makes an angle of 12° relative to the horizontal and sustains a tension of 447 N. Find the magnitude and direction of the tension that the right section of the wire sustains.
I got the tension in the rope which is 440N, I am having trouble finding the Direction.
° (counterclockwise from x-axis) ?
I tried 1/cos of 164/440...its wrong
