## Homework Statement

a uniform steel ring 60" in diameter and weighing 600 lbs is lifted by three cables each 50" long attached at points A (90*) B (90*) C (120*) with a radius of 30". compute the magnitude of tension force in each cable

## Homework Equations

all moment equations

ft=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

first two cables have a force of 250 lbs and last one has 100 lbs. more of an incorrect guess figured since two have the same angle they would be the same. since there is almost no acceleration (besides gravity) i don't think i could solve it with my equation. it also wouldn't help because i need tension in each string not one tension.

note: degrees=*
