1. A uniform right circular solid cone of weight W is suspended by two vertical strings attached to the ends A and B of a diameter of its base. If the cone hangs in equilibrium with its vertex vertically below A, find the tension in the strings. 2. Centre of mass of cone from the vertex is 3/4 h Moments formula 3. I understand we have to take moments to find the tension but 1) I'm not sure if the tension in both strings is the same 2) since the vertex is vertically below A, I'm not sure what the horizontal distance from the weight to A and B is to be able to use moments. I know that the c.o.m of the cone lies at 3/4 h from the vertex but not sure what the coordinates will be in this case and I assume you require the x-coordinate for the horizontal distance .
