    ok, I am preparing for a test and I can not find this explained simply online.

    how do I find the force of tension on two ropes supporting a box (mg=98N) if the angle that the ropes form are not equal to one another?

    please help? D:

    Hi yyttr2! :smile:
    Call one T1 and the other T2, and then either draw a vector triangle, or take components in some suitable direction (perpendicular to either string is fastest). :wink:

    Why is that worrying you? :smile:
