I am stuck on one of the AP Physics problems. Could you please help me out and give some pointers on how to solve the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A hemispherical sign 1 m in diameter and of uniform mass density is supported by two strings. What fraction of the sign's weight is supported by each string?

[see attachment for the diagram]

Thank you
