1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A large chandelier is supported by two ropes. Rope 1 makes a 40 degree angle with the ceiling and has a tension of 150N. Rope two forms a 50 degree angle with the ceiling. What is the tension in rope 2 and what is the mass of the chandelier given the chandelier. 2. Relevant equations F = ma T-mg = ma Law of sines? 3. The attempt at a solution So i solved it through the law of sines and got an answer significantly different than what my professor said it should be. I would be interested in knowing why. Here is the work: 150/sin(50) = T2/sin40 T2 = 150*sin(40)/sin(50) T2 = 125.86N whereas the correct answer is 179N. Then for the mass: 150*sin(40)+125.86*sin(50) = mg m = 19.66kg whereas the correct answer is 23.8kg. I was wondering why the law of sines did not provide a correct answer in this case, and what different steps I should take to get at the right answer. Thanks in advance!
