Two ropes are connected to a steel cable that supports a hanging weight as shown in the figure.
Draw a free-body diagram showing all of the forces acting at the knot that connects the two ropes to the steel cable.
Based on your force diagram, which of the two ropes will have the greater tension?
The Attempt at a Solution
So Vector length: C<A<B
or should the length of C equal the length of A+B?
So vector A will have the greater tension than vector B because it is shorter?
Does this look and sound correct?
thank you :)
