A 5.0kg mass is suspended from the ceiling. A horizontal force F is applied to hold the string in position as shown
Determine the reading of F on the spring balance by using a scale diagram
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
Am I doing it correctly?
It doesn’t really make sense to me. I can’t determine the force F. I only have 30degree angle and the weight.
I don’t know how to draw the length of Force F. What is it should I be looking for?
