A ball of mass 0.850 kg is dangling as shown. The angle created with String 1 and ceiling is 30 degrees. The angle created with the second and the ceiling is 45 degrees. What is the tension in each string?
The Attempt at a Solution
T1=tension in string 1
T2=tension in string 2
W=weight of ball
I determined the the x and y acceleration to be zero. T1y+T2y=0. and T1x+T2x+W=0. i then used trigonometric identities.
i then did substitution with the formulas and i found the tension in string 1 to be 6.10 i know this to be correct. and substituting in for the second tension i get 4.31 but i am being told that this is wrong so what exactly am i doing wrong?
