1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data So it's given the pipe has a inside diameter of 60cm and outside diameter of 70cm. the two ropes AC and AB are separated by a spreader bar. Wants us to find tension in the ropes. Also give is the density of concrete which is 2320kg. 2. Relevant equations pi(r)^2*L=Area 3. The attempt at a solution pi(.7-.6m)^2*2.5*2320=23215Newtons Can we just then divide that answer by sqrt of 2 because the ropes are equal? If no that is where I get lost is how to do the other part of the math. Thanks!
