1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
- An object with a mass of 300 kg is suspended between two cables which sag at an
angle of 40ᴼ below horizontal, on either side. Draw a free-body diagram.
- While driving in your car, you notice that the string holding the rosary to your
rear-view mirror makes an angle of θ = 29ᴼ with respect to the vertical. The mass of the
rosary is 0.06 kg. Consider the vertical forces on the rosary to be in equilibrium
during this situation.
