## Homework Statement

Those weird squiqqles are supposed to represent springs. Not exactly an artist :D

## Homework Equations

F = kx

## The Attempt at a Solution

After drawing a fbd and breaking the tension into x and y components I got:

ΣF

_{y}T(sinθ) =5

ΣF

_{x}T(cosθ) = T(cosθ)

T = 5x since the force acting on the spring is T and k is given as 5.

I tried taking the given 4ft into consideration, I tried seeing if there was some substitution I could make to solve any of those equations. Been struggling for like an hour now...
