I have an easy problem that most of u will answer easily (Yr 11 Physics).
I need to find the tension of two pieces of string that are holding a 1Kg weight.
Hopefully the picture below is easy to understand...there is a 70 degree angle from the horizontal for T1 and a 20 degree angle from the horizontal for T2, and obviously 90 degrees at the bottom. All I need is the tension values T1 and T2 and also an explanation of how to do it (please show all working out). Apparently it has something to with the horizontal and vertical force components?????
