One end of a chord is attached to the ceiling at D and another to the wall at A. Masses of W kg and 20 kg are attached to the cord so that it assumes the shape shown on the right. Find W and the tension in each of AB, BC, and CD. http://img126.imageshack.us/img126/9884/forces4zx.jpg [Broken] stuck on this question...probably due to the lack of information. these are my thoughts so far: do i want to isolate small areas and solve for the values related to them? for example, taking the point B, tensions BC, AB and the 20 kg are attached to this, do i want to start here? using the values solved, can i proceed to points C and D?
