Assuming those vectors add to zero, just add the horizontal components.

Do you have a specific question? Where did this relationship come from? I assume it's part of a larger problem?still not clear

Do you know how to find components of a vector? Read this: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/HBASE/vect.html#vec5"

horizontal components sum to 0.

yes u r right, i was solving a problem on surface tension. For the equilibrium of the drop, the horizontal components must balance each other.

yes, its a part of a larger problem; problem on surface tension.

Doc Al's point was "Apply that method (of finding components) and you will answer your own question!"yes, its a part of a larger problem; problem on surface tension.
