**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

While driving in your car, you notice that the string holding the fuzzy dice to your

rear-view mirror makes an angle of θ = 30° with respect to the vertical. The mass of the

fuzzy dice is 0.15 kg. Consider the fuzzy dice to be in equilibrium during this situation. Find the tension in the string.

**2. The attempt at a solution**

Tcosθ = mg => T = mg/cosθ

= (0.15 kg)(9.8 m/s^{2})/cos30°

= 1.7 N
