hey guys,
nice fourm!

I just wanted to ask, in the diagram below i calculated that in each rope the force is 200KN, does that make sense?

That is 60 degrees

You might want to check that again. 200 kN is about 45,000 pounds force. All from a 10 kg object?

Start with a free body diagram and Newton's first law in both x and y directions [tex]\Sigma F = 0[/tex] to get your equations of equilibrium.
