Physics: Two pulley tension problem
October 2nd, 2022
Please help me with attached problem.
Thanks in advance
1. Force Table is set up with 2 pulleys at 50 degrees and at 170 degrees as shown.
A total of 200 grams is suspended from the pulley at 50 degrees and a total of 300 grams is suspended from the pulley at 170 degrees. A third string, tied to the big ring, is attached to a force probe, and the probe is pulled so that the big ring is in the equilibrium with center of the force table.
Find: the magnitude of the tension force that the two shown strings exert on the ring.
