Q) A transmission cable AB exerts a 3000N force on the pole in the direction of the tangent to the cable at A (see Fig. 1). Determine the required tension T in the wire AB if the resultant of the two forces at A is to be vertical (1 point). Find the magnitude R of the resultant (2 points).
ƩF = 0
The Attempt at a Solution
I want to understand what does it mean that the 3000 N force on the pole in the direction of the tangent cable at A.
