## Homework Statement

A heavy weight is suspended by a cable and pulled to one side by a force F. How much force is required to hold the weight in equilibrium at a given distance x to one side. Tcosθ=W and Tsinθ=F. Find F/W as a power series of θ. Often in a problem like this, what we know is not θ, but x and l. Find F/W as a series of powers in x/l.

l is the length if the cable

W is weight

T is the tension in the cable
