1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data My books doesn't seem to give a good explanation of tension vectors. I was hoping someone on here could explain them better. I put the picture from the book up. The two questions with pictures are the one's I'm having trouble with. In case you can't read them: The one with the red box says, A 112.1-kg sign is hung from two strings as shown below. What is the tension in each string? [tex]\theta[/tex] = 35.0 degrees on the string going to the right and [tex]\theta[/tex] = 50.0 degrees The second question with the fish says, A fisherman is deisplaying his prize catch by hanging it as illustrated below. The horizontal string in the hanging apparatus is weak and will only be able to stand a tension of 13.0 pounds before it breaks. What is the maximum weight for a fish to hang on this system? T= 13.0 lbs max [tex]\theta[/tex] = 40.0 degrees I get think I get the concept it's the math and finding what information I already know that's giving me the trouble. Thanks for any help.
