The problem and my equation for finding the tension in rope one are shown in the image above. I am stuck on finding the tension for the horizontal component of the second rope's tension and finding the angle theta
Homework Equations
F=ma
F=TW
The Attempt at a Solution
[/B]
To find the tension in rope 2 I have tried to find the vertical component first, here's a rundown of what I did.
Fy=T2yWy
ma=T2ymg
0=T2ymg (since the penguin is at rest a=0)
T2y=mg
T2y=6.00kg*9.8m/s^2
T2y=58.8N
And for the horizontal component, I think the equation would go something like this?
Fx=T2x?
For angle theta I need more than one component to solve for, so at this point I can't, but if I had the x and y compenents I could just use tan^1 adj/opp.
