Homework Help: Teddy Bear in Perril

  1. Jan 16, 2015 #1
    There is a teddy bear with a weight of 2.5 N suspended by two strings at 30º and at 40º. What is the tension of each string?

    Let Theta1 be 30 and Theta2 be 40

    I know that T1 sin Theta1 + T2 sin Theta2=mg

    I apologize I don't know how to type all the special characters

    For special characters, you can use LaTeX.

    How did you define the angles? The sine here looks odd.
    There is also another force balance you can use.
