HI!! ok i drew the problem out.

Question:

Two artifacts in a museum display are hung from vertical walls by very light wires. Find the tension in each of the three wires.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fy=0

[tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fx=0

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok so i know the tension in T1 is the same as the weight of the second artifact which is 314N

I just get all confused trying to figure out the other two

[tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fy= -175N + 175cos53 = 0

which came to N = .60 ????????????

and for [tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fx i only got 175sin90 ??

i just need help trying to figure out where to go or how to set it up i'm so lost =(
