I have a rope held by a hook, which is attached to the ceiling by a chain (with an angle theta), in one side, the rope (with an angle alpha) is attached to a a wall, in the other side, the rope is carrying an anvil of 110 Kg mass in vertical position. What is the tension in the rope? The system is static.
The Attempt at a Solution
No matter the configuration of this system, the tension in a rope will be the same at any point, so if the rope is carrying an anvil 110 Kg mass: W=(110 Kg)(9.81m/s^2)=1079.1 N.
Which is equal to the tension but in different direction.
Am I right?
