1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data So In this problem, I have two strings, one string pulls with pounds and is 30 degrees away from an imaginary line straight down of of the two strings and there are no variables or degrees given for the second string. The weight is 20 pounds. I have been looking at this equation for hours and nothing is coming to mind. The answer is 10.3 pounds, but i don't know what to do to get there. Also have to have a free body diagram. here is a picture of problem 2.2. The numbers is parenthesis are the answers to the problem. If i could find the answer for a, then i could easily do b.
