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: ABC D T 2 T 1 cos a T 1 sin a 2 T 1 cos a 2 T 1 sin a 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 5 T 1 sin a ) 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 a .
