## Homework Statement

A mass of 17kg is supported statically by two strings. T2 has a magnitude of 150N at β=45° to the right of the vertical. (a)Calculate the vector T1. (b) If T2 was acting vertically downwards with the same magnitude as in (a) calculate T1.

## Homework Equations

0=T1sinα-T2sinβ

0=T2cosβ+T1cosα-mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

I calculated T1 for the first part and found it to be 122.1N at 60.31° to the left of the vertical. I'm not sure how to do the second part.
