## Homework Statement

A 1200 kg steel beam is supported by two ropes. Rope one is 20 degrees off of the vertical, and rope two is 30 degrees off of the vertical. What is the tension on rope two? (Answer should look like '2300 N'.)

## Homework Equations

F=ma

The weight of the mass is defined as the force of gravity on the object. therefore W=(1,200 kg)(-9.8 m/s squared). W= -11,760

## The Attempt at a Solution

?W=(1,200 kg)(-9.8 m/s squared). W= -11,760

Now I am not sure what do to.[/B]
