August 24, 2009 NAME____________________________________________ Solution: The tension vector for the wire on the left is T 1 = j T 1 j cos (128 ) i + j T 1 j sin (128 ) j and the tension in the wire on the right is T 2 = j T 2 j cos (40 ) i + j T 2 j sin (40 ) j . The weight vector is W = 5 g j where g = 9 : 8 m = s 2 . Since T 1 + T 2 + W = 0 , we obtain j T 1 j cos (128 ) + j T 2 j cos (40 ) = 0 and j T 1 j sin (128 ) + j T 2 j sin (40 ) = 5 g . j T 2 j gives j T 2 j = cos (128 ) cos (40 ) j T 1 j . 1

Therefore j T 2 j = & cos (128 & ) cos (40 & ) j T 1 j 30 : 19 N . In conclusion, the magnitude of the tension in the left wire is about 37 : 56 N and the magnitude of the tension in the right wire is about 30 : 19 N . 2...
