Two identical masses are suspended symmetrically, as shown, so that T 1 , the tension along string 1, is equal to T 3 , the tension along string 3. Find T 2 , the tension along string 2: A B C D T 2 T 1 cos T 1 sin 2 T 1 cos 2 T 1 sin Extra: Now lengthen string 2. This is done both to the right and to the left while maintaining the symmetry of the setup. Will T 2 increase, stay the same, or decrease? Explanation: String 2 is pulled to the left by the horizontal component of T 1 (that is, T 1 x T 1 sin ) and to the right in equal magnitude by the horizontal component of T 3 . Because tension is defined as the magnitude of either of the pulling forces, the tension along string 2 is T 1 sin .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
