(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

See figure.

2. Relevant equations

[tex] \sum F_{x} = 0 [/tex]

[tex] \sum F_{y} = 0 [/tex]

[tex] \sum M = 0 [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

See figure (written in my writing).

Are the tensions A and B suppose to be the same? I imagine not because they are at different angles so they have different magnitudes but at the same time tension should be constant over the smooth pulley.

I'm having trouble solving the tension in ADB.

Any ideas?
