Question

a. What is the resultant force exerted by the two cables supporting the traffic light in the figure? Magnitude and direction are needed. Options for direction are left, right, up, or down.

b. What is the weight of the light? In N.

Step 1

Given

Force in right cable (T_{1}) = 60.0 N

Force in left cable (T_{2}) = 60.0 N

Angles

Step 2

Resolution of forces

Step 3

The horizontal components of forces exerted by the two cable cancel out, vertical components are...
