Answer to Question #1063 in Mechanics | Relativity for Taylor
A 3.0 N picture is hung by a nail with a loose string that makes an equilateral triangle with the edges of the frame. ( The nail and two sides of the picture form a triangle.) What is the tension in the string? (Hint: the nail acts like a pulley and each piece of string on each side of the nail holds 1/2 of the picture weight.)
The tension in the string is T = mg/(2sin(60)) = 3 / (2sin(60)) = 1.73 N.
I'm highly satisfied with the quality of your work. Thank you very much!
While I'm very impressed with the math, physics and find computer science help perfect... It was still hard for me to find electrical engineering help with your site.
One of the areas I will need help with are circuit analysis.
