Homework Help: Two beads connected by a taut thread on friction-less wire ring Proof

  1. Feb 4, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    NUMBER 271

    2. Relevant equations
    Not Really Sure

    3. The attempt at a solution
    No Idea where to start, I looked up the law of Tangents and it seems to do with that. Please help! :)
    I am also confident that it has to do with equilibrium?
