Okay, so I was given a diagram that looks like the one I linked to above.

This is pretty basic, using Newton's second law to find-

A) the weight of the "lamp"

B) the tension in the chain

The strut is exerting a force of110 N, the angle between the strut and the ceiling is55°.

Thanks so much!

***ALSO the diagram says 11 N, the correct force is110 N
