I was wondering how you would go about solving the diagram I have drawn below. It is a simple representation of a body in equilibrium due to the tension of the 4 lines represented as vectors. The two forces are along the respective x and y axis.
With the forces shown one of the lines is useless however but this is necessary as the forces can change direction.
Looking at this instant simultaneous equations don't working without a lot of assumptions, I can solve part the problem with matrices or get an answer using computer software but I am interested in the process to resolve the tensions.
Any ideas?
