(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The bar is in static equilibrium W = 15N, Na = 11N and Nb which is perpendicular to the bar,Nb = 5.66N.What is the magnitude of tension forceT?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

W - Na - Nb*sin(theta) = 0;

15 - 11 - 5.66*sin(theta) = 0

theta = 45 deg

Nb*cos(theta) = T

T = 5.66*cos(45)

T = 4 N

But the options given are a)17.79N b)25N c)12N d)21N e)0.9 m^2

solve this problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,
