A 20-kg loudspeaker is suspended 2.0 m below the ceiling by two
ropes that are each 30? from vertical.
Find the value of T, the magnitude of the tension in
either of the ropes.
Express your answer in newtons.
Suppose that the loudspeaker in the problem had a mass of 500 kg
and the ropes hung 20? from the vertical. Into which of the
following intervals would you expect T to fall? You do not
have to calculate Texactly to answer this question; just
make an estimate.
500 to 1000 N 1000 to 2000 N 2000 to 4000 N 4000 to 8000 N 8000 to 16,000 N
the vertical component of both the tension inrope should be
equal to weight of speaker .
