1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Suppose that an insect has mass m and hangs from a horizontal rod with an angle of 40*. Its six legs are all under the same tension, and the leg sections nearest the body are horizontal. What is the ratio of the tension in each of the legs. 2. Relevant picture http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/1161/bugsj3.th.jpg [Broken]http://g.imageshack.us/thpix.php [Broken] The angle is going to be on the left and right side 3. The attempt at a solution I made a triangle of the problem. Since I know that the mass of the insect is at the bottom. I made the triangle with the two legs equaling 3sin40 and the other 3cos40. The 3 and 3 both equal the 6 legs. Now I do not know how to find the tension.
