A rope forms a Y.

At the end of the Y hangs a block with a W= 100N

Whole the two upper ends are on the walls.

(Left side) [tex]T{1}[/tex] with an angle of 90 degrees

(Right side) [tex]T{2}[/tex] with an angle of 58 degrees

Find the tension of each rope on the wall.

2. Relevant equations

No definite formulas

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fx=[tex]T{1}[/tex]cos90-[tex]T{2}[/tex]cos58=0

Summation of Fy=Tsub2sin58-100=0

=117.92

cos90=0

Which makes the value of [tex]T{1}[/tex] an error.

Where did I go wrong?
