Ideas on how to approach the following problem?
You know you should really show some working / thoughts. Its better in the long run if we can guide you to 'discovering' the process yourself.
This is a torque question btw.
Sum of all external forces = 0. Only dealing with the y direction.
T1 + T2 - .18g = 0
Sum of the torques = 0
.18g(.5) -T2(.9) = 0
Looks correct to me.
Separate names with a comma.
