Homework Help: Finding Tension of 2 Cables

  1. Jan 19, 2009 #1
    In the drawing below, find the tension in cable one and in cable two.

    Ok so my teacher provided us with the answers, but she did not show us how to do it. Help? I am totally confused.

    BTW the answers are: 215.79 N and 263.16 N

    What have you done so far? Where are you stuck?

    Hint: What are the conditions for static equilibrium?
