    Equilibrium and Gravity

    Consider the diagram shown below of a flagpole of length, h. The flag is blowing in the wind exerting a force, F, horizontally on the flagpole a distance of 0.8h above the ground. The flagpole itself is hinged at the bottom and is kept upright by a light, inextensible guide rope that makes an angle to the horizontal. What is the tension, T, in the guide rope?

    [Enter the variable θ using the string 'theta' (no quotes).]
