Homework Help: Monkey force diagram and tension problem

  1. Dec 16, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 5kg monkey hangs initially at rest from two vines, A and B, as shown in the JPEG attached. Each of the vines is 10m long and has negligible mass.

    a) Draw a force diagram labeling all forces acting on the monkey. (do not resolve the forces into components, indicate their directions though.)

    b) What's the tention in vine B while the monkey is at rest?

    It is a requirement that you please list what you believe may be relevant equations and that you show some attempt at a solution before we can give assistance. Thank you.
