## Homework Equations

[tex]\sum[/tex]F

_{x}= 0

[tex]\sum[/tex]M

_{A}= 0

## The Attempt at a Solution

for part A, i get 14123N as the tension, moment at C about B, 9.8x1000x5 = 49050

49050/7 = 7007N

tan

^{-1}(4/7) = 29.74

^{o}

TSin(29.74) - 7007 = 0

TSin(29.74) = 7007

T=7007/sin(29.74) = 14123N

Is this correct?

Also I had a go at part b, however, went round in circles, so can anyone help me?

Cheers
