1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Component diagram: include all forces, x & y, angles compare x components (are they equal?) do y-components equal 0? 2. Relevant equations Fnet = ma = 0 = F + F + F.... SOHCAHTOA 3. The attempt at a solution Attached is my diagram with components drawn in. There are two pulleys with a rope strung across them, with a weight on each end, and one tied in the middle. Weight on the left (100g), middle (120g), right (92g). I need to calculate the x and y components, and see how close they add up to equal 0. Is the y-component for both vectors = (120g)(9.8)? I thought it should be, however if thats the case, the x-components wont be equal and opposite: (.120g)(9.8)tan54 vs (.120g)(9.8)tan50. And how do I account for the other two weights?
