A picture frame hung against a wall is suspended by two wires attached to its upper corners. If the two wires make the same angle with the horizontal, what must this angle be if the tension in each wire is equal to .700 of the weight of the picture frame


Expert Answer

Step 1

The vertical component of tension in the wires can be calculated as follows.

Step 2

The tension in each wire is equal to 0.700 of the weight of the frame.

The frame...
