# Hello, I am in desperate need to solve this problem involving different tensions

ok, and object is hanging on two strings. The object weights 20 kg and the angle of the two strings are different, one of them is 60 and the other one is 70. There are no other forces in it. I need to figure out the tension of each string.

Hi!
I'm not completely sure of this, so take what I say with a pinch (handful, even) of salt.

The system is at rest, so to find the tension it's going to be the weight that the string is holding. To find that i would be using rectangular components of a force, taking the weight of the object as the vertical component and the 70 and 60's as the angles.

This question should be in the homework section and you need to show your attempt at the solution before anyone can help you.

this isint homework... im in 8th... im not learning this yet... i go to this enrichment program and im completely lost... so yeah, if you know the answer. Please help me
