Homework Help: Finding an angle

  1. Dec 4, 2011 #1
    Find the angles '1 and '2 in Fig. 4–51 if all the weights
    are at rest.

    Solution: The picture is on the paint document... I also drew some diagrams to help solve the problem.. I wanted to know if the diagrams were correct? Anyways as I proceed to solve for angle 1 and 2 it is hard because I dont know how to pull all the information together...

    i think your diagrams are correct. Now system is at rest so all the forces acting in opposite directions are equal.
