A block of weight w is suspended from a rope tied to two other ropes at point O. One rope is horizontally attached to a wall and the other is fastened to the ceiling. The angle between ceiling and the rope is 60°. What are the tensions in each of the ropes? Assume the weights of the ropes and the knot are negligible. If the weight of the block is 100 N, what is the tension in the ceiling rope?
