With reference to the attached picture (very basic). - Point X, Y & G are anchored. - The 100kg load is suspended by point G (like a 1:1 pulley) - Assume F is 90degs My observations: With an angle of 90deg I see that approx 70% of the load from point A would be transfered along the lines A-B , A-C. I also see that the load at point A would be close to double the actual load with the 1:1 setup. Now the line from X to Y needs to stay in approximately a horizontal line for the anchors X and Y to work. I see that the line D to E increases in tension once the load is applied at point A. Assume all lines have zero stretch and assume nil friction reducing the forces. Scenario 1: How much force is felt at points: A,B,C,D,E, X&Y? Scenario 2: If the load fell 1 meter what are the forces now with an increase in inertia? Really hope you can help clarify things here and I appreciate your time.
