1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Attached the question. 2. Relevant equations (total) tension = mg 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not sure how the tension gets divided here. I know the tension on the right hand side of the turnbuckle is the same tension on the left hand side since they are symmetrical. But when does the tension get divided in the pullies, and by how much, I don't know. Help would be appreciated.
