  A student hangs three masses from a force table. If the first mass of 172g is at an angle of 184 degrees, and she then hangs a mass of 248g at 259 degrees, calculate the mass and angle of the third mass so that ring on the force table is in equilibrium. Assume the given masses include the mass of the hangers.

Question

A student hangs three masses from a force table. If the first mass of 172g is at an angle of 184 degrees, and she then hangs a mass of 248g at 259 degrees, calculate the mass and angle of the third mass so that ring on the force table is in equilibrium. Assume the given masses include the mass of the hangers.
