I'm having trouble on this problem: A weight of 21 kg is suspended by means of three strings T1,T2,T3. T1 and two are connected to a ceiling and meet at their end. T3 connects at the joint section of T2 and T3. All that you are given is the angles of T1 & T2 and the weight of the object. How would one find the tensions in each string. I understand how to find tension in a one string question....but not with three strings.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
