A 30 kg chandelier hangs vertically from a 4 m long wire. What is the horizontal force necessary to displace the chandelier 0.10 m either way?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to figure out the angle made by the change in the wire's position if the chandelier moved .1 m. I eventually got that the angle should be about 1.43 degrees. From there, I have no idea what to do. I never learned how to figure how much force is necessary to move an object a certain distance. Thanks for any help!
