Yep...back to old statics. Not because I have a test (already passed it in flying colours) just for fun seeing what I can solve and can't...now I ran into this: 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/1533/pulleyf.jpg [Broken] Statics: The weight is 50kg. Find force P to hold it in equilibrium. 3. The attempt at a solution http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/5787/pulleya.jpg [Broken] Somehow I got the result in minus, trying to find where is the logic in this. Or, otherwise, where is the flaw in my logic.
