Homework Statement: Which part of the statement isn’t correct and which is?
Is the tension larger in T1 or T2.
Homework Equations: Fnet=mg
The sum of the two tensions must equal the mass x gravity or weight since the mass is not moving so the force of gravity must equal the force of tension so the ropes can hold up the mass without it falling.
I think the Tension of string 2 would have to be larger since it has a larger angle. I am not sure though since we are given no numbers and I feel like the angle doesn’t play a factor into it besides finding X and Y values of the forces. But more Y force equals more tension right? So wouldn’t larger angle = more tension?
