Welcome to the PF, Zack. An important rule here is that we do not do your work for you and just solve your problem. You must show your own work so far to get help. What does your free body diagram look like? What equations have you been using so far?

(As an aside, generally the term "Physician" like you used in your title means a medical doctor, not a physicist. I'm not sure exactly what you meant by the use of the word. No big deal -- I just wanted to be sure you understood the distinction if english is not your primary language.)
