1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 0.13 kg meter stick is held perpendicular to a wall by a 2.7 m string going from the wall to the far end of the stick. (a) Find the tension in the string. (b) If a shorter string is used, will its tension be greater than, less than, or the same as that found in part (a)? (c) Find the tension in a 2.0 m string. 2. Relevant equations Torque=Nr? 3. The attempt at a solution I discovered the angle to be 68.38 degrees, and I thought that, since the y-component of the force cancels out mg, T=mg/sin(theta). Why is it wrong?
