1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data So I am at a loss at the moment my brain is not functioning.... Ok so we had to set up a pulley like system with straws, string and paper clips. The assignment was to do this and gather data, they didn't say what data to all gather.. I collected number of paper clips in all three locations Left, Middle, Right and the Angles.... Example... Paper clips... Left 3 Middle 4 Right 4 Each weighing 1g Angles... from the middle point measured from the horizon line.. Left of center 68deg. Right of center 44deg. This is where I am stuck.... I am lost where to go from here.... I know to be in equilibrium I have to come up with 0 but between here and there... I am lost.. I do know I have to use sin and cos but I am lost as to my placement of numbers.. Thank you in advance..
