# This one will tackle your physics skills it tackled mine !

its the y component of tension that will cause a change in tension in each of the strings

they are the same direction, but why are they equal?

what is equal?

why wouldnt the tension in the x direction for both the strings be the same..
they both r connected to the same pole

i m starting to get annoyed by the question

that doesn't mean they are the same. the mass pulls more on the top string because the mass is below it, so the top string fights gravity and the lower string in the y direction. the x and y of both strings are ___?

yah i know that the force due to gravity ( or the tension in y direction) is diff for both strings
but isnt the tension in x direction same
and i think the tension in x direction is the centripetal force on the object which is also in the x direction
which is 790 N

the tension in the strings is at a 45 degree angle. this means the x and y components are equal. no, the x's are not both equal to each other

ok i m confused
y say the x and y are equal
but the xs are not ?

the x and y on the US are equal to each other.
the x and y on the LS are different, but equal to themselves.

ohh okay
i c what u mean
but if the x and y on both r diff
how r they still forming a 90 degree angle at the point they meet on the object

because each rope is at 45 degrees. i'm sorry but i need to go for now. i hope you can get it and if not, i'll be back in a few hours.

thanks a lot for all your help

I have the same problem with this task... Anyone solved it? Please?? It's urgent.
