1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find Tension T and w2 in each cable in diagram. Diagram: http://i52.tinypic.com/8z33ub.jpg (i drew this in paint, sorry if it looks bad) 2. Relevant equations only basic algebra is needed 3. The attempt at a solution To find T and w2 i need to find angle Alpha but i cannot seem to come up with a way to be able to find it. I have looked at geometry books to try to solve the angle using the other angle given but it is not possible for me. Once i get alpha i will be able to solve for T and W2 but finding angle alpha has proven to be impossible for me.
