(rotate picture 90 degree clockwise)

A 50 lb weight is supported by a wire attached to a pulley at point B. The Pulley rests on wire ABC. If the tension in wire ABC is equal to 70lb determine the angle [tex]\phi[/tex] necessary to keep point B in balance

2. Relevant equations

F=ks

3. The attempt at a solution

I Know there is some force acting from C to D. There is also some spring force acting from C to E. What I don't understand is how to model the FBD with the tension force ABC and 50lb weight at point C
